Peter Falk's Daughter: My Dad Has Alzheimer's

12/16/2008 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The daughter of Hollywood legend Peter Falk says her father is no longer competent to run his own life because he suffers from Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

Catherine Falk filed legal papers in L.A. County Superior Court claiming her father "requires full-time custodial care for his health and safety."

In the docs, Catherine claims she is worried her father "can easily be deceived into transferring away property" and believes a conservatorship will protect Peter from "fraud or undue influence."

A hearing on the matter is set for next month. Calls to Falk's reps were not returned.

What an actor! Thanks for the memories of Columbo as well as "The Price of Tomatoes" with Inger Stevens. What a strong impression you made!

Peter, I will always have fond memories of you.

I was a college student at the Charles V English Institute (Universite Paris 5) in the 80s and "Columbo" was the weekend entertaiment on the French tv. My family and I would leave everything aside until we've enjoyed every minute with Peter Falk. This life is realy short! But thanks for who you were: RIP
