Blake Edwards (1922-2010)
Blake Edwards, director of many screwball comedies, died today* of pneumonia. His movies included Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Pink Panther, and Victor/Victoria, starring his wife, Julie Andrews.
Enjoy “The Pink Flea” and some Henry Mancini.
*Update/Clarification thanks to the LA Times: Early today for the East Coast, he actually died last night (10:30 PST) in Santa Monica. Damn Gray Lady and her East Coast centrism.
