He was also good as the cab driver in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

I liked him, but I didn't like the character in Columbo for much the same reason I dislike Monk.

I thought he died years ago, but I hope he has found Peace. :(

He was a superb actor. His character in Tune in Tomorrow steals every scene in the movie ("Those damned Albanians!"), and he was great as the Grandfather in The Princess Bride. RIP.

I always loved his, "By the way..." when he was about to trap the bad guy.
