The Criterion Collection adds 21 films to their Hulu Plus page; includes Peter Falk/John Cassavetes MIKEY AND NICKY
Today brought with it the deeply sad news that iconic actor, Peter Falk, had passed away at the age of 83. During his over fifty year career, the actor had starred in such great films as MURDER, INC and A POCKETFUL OF MIRACLES.
