El Jefe

In honor (as you've already paid) of another great sideman lost in the last week, I would like to take a moment and pay tribute to Falk's genius -- and that's not too strong a word, he was a genius when given the task -- as a true sideman, not a "supporting player" but the guy just off center who brings it all together so everyone can shine.

- For the kids, The Princess Bride:
"But you don't want to hear about any of that kissing stuff."

- The In Laws, where his work on screen gave us one of Alan Arkin's best performances,
"Serpentine! Serpentine!"

- The Great Race, where he and Jack Lemmon were the best moustache-twirler and henchman ever put in live action:
Max (Falk): Wait'll you see what I did to car Number Five!
Professor Fate (Lemmon): Max ... we're car Number Five.

This news hurt my heart. (And that on a good day, for your state and the country.) We can't afford to lose too many like him.
