One of the dwindling number of Columbo villains still among us (although he was good in just about everything he did). And his episode is near and dear to my heart now:

Let's check if he's in Frank's puzzle. I mean, there's a Larry Sanders Show question ….

I thought he was a hoot on Larry Sanders. And really liked his performance in Cross Creek.

That's one of my favorite Columbo episodes, sss.

Whenever he was on screen, he brightened it up for me. He was brilliant.

I was crushed when he started getting arrested for drunk driving. I'm glad he never killed anybody but sad he set such a bad example.

I'd forgotten or never knew about Cross Creek -- I'll watch it first chance I get.
