I loved him in Colombo, but really the thing that cemented him in the heart of my generation was the grandfather in Princess Bride.

You have to be the first person I've ever heard admit that they actually watched Princess Bride. :D

Awesome movie... not sure if there's some stigma with the word princess, but most people I know were secure enough to get over that when they turned 12.

Meh.. it's an unfettered moment of awesomeness from child hood and there's a relative paucity of folks my age who I can't say "Hello, my name in Indigo Montoya" and have them finish the line.

I watched Columbo on a regular basis.

Peter was fantastic.

Great book.  I've watched the movie several times although I agree the book was even better.

I'm now officially embarrassed. I got this mixed up with The Princess Diaries, which was silly and sucked. I haven't seen the Falk movie, so I won't comment on it.
