Today’s pic (and need I remind you to click to embiggen?) is from one of three appearances Tim made on the classic detective series Columbo, starring the late great Peter Falk. Here we see him as diner owner Bert in the episode “Dead Weight,” which first aired on October 27, 1971.
Bert appears in this episode and also in the very first Columbo episode, “Ransom for a Dead Man” (1971). You could always get an excellent bowl of chili from Bert. Tim’s last appearance on the show was as deli owner Tony in “Fade in to Murder” (1976).
