I just saw that too. Always affable. Most memorable in the original (and still the best) movie The Time Machine. When WB released the DVD in 1993 they actually created a mini-sequel with Bean and Rod Taylor reprising their original roles. It had our time traveler, H.G. Wells, traveling back to his 19th century time period to tell his postman, played by Bean, what happened since he defeated the Morlocks. It was a charming short film.

I saw Pat Metheny play a number of times with Gary Burton before he formed his own group. After about a year he went his own way and Lyle was in his first group. I saw their first appearance at Amazingrace in Evanston IL in July 1976. Amazingrace held around 400 people most of who sat on the floor. I actually have bootleg cassettes that I recorded in 1978 on a Nakamichi tied into the sound board. They sound awful!

We often have fond memories of TV shows we grew up with. Many of them, on rewatching as a adult, don't stand up. Columbo is one of the few that has not dated and is still as good as it was when it was first on. This is due not only to Peter Falk's great job in the lead, but also to consistently first class writing, direction, and production. The episode directed by Steven Spielberg even has a tribute to Citizen Kane.

Falk is buried in the must-see Pierce Brothers Westwood Memorial Park. His headstone is a tribute to his beloved wife, and protector of his estate (from his evil daughter), Shera Danese. She appeared on Columbo six times, more than any other guest actor. The real "Mrs. Columbo" indeed.
