Peter Falk’s Daughter Says He Has Alzheimer’s

For those of you who were fetuses or merely a tenting in your father’s pants back in the 70s/80s, Peter Falk is a masterful actor who played trenchcoated detective Columbo back in the day. Oh, you might also know him as the grandfather who read tiny Fred Savage the bedtime story in The Princess Bride. Anyway, his daughter has filed a petition in court for conservatorship over his estate because he has Alzheimer’s. If we were into using emoticons, I would be placing the sad face one right here.

His daughter Katherine says that the actor “requires full-time custodial care for his health and safety,” in paper she filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Falk’s daughter says that her Dad “can easily be deceived into transferring away property” and want to protect him from “fraud or undue influence.”

There will be a hearing next month. Ugh. Alzheimer’s is the worst. So unfair.
