    Daughter: Peter Falk Suffering From Alzheimer’s

    A court document filed by Peter Falk’s daughter says the Emmy-winning actor is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

    Catherine Falk is seeking a court’s approval for a conservatorship of her 81-year-old father, who she claims no longer recognizes people. A hearing has been scheduled for late January.

    Falk is familiar to most audiences as the star of the television series “Columbo,” for which he won four Emmys. He was also nominated twice for Academy Awards for movie roles in 1959 and
    1960.

    The petition filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court states Falk lives in Beverly Hills with his wife and recently had hip surgery and requires constant care.

    A phone message left for Falk’s manager was not immediately returned Tuesday.
