Blake Edwards, 1922-2010

Filmmaker and screenwriter Blake Edwards died on Wednesday, December 15 in Santa Monica, California, aged 88.

Although universally remembered as a comedy director, mostly due to his work in the Pink Panther series with actor Peter Sellers, he also excelled in drama in films like Breakfast at Tiffany’s (with Audrey Hepburn) and Days of Wine and Roses (with Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick).

Since 1969 he had been married to actress Julia Andrews, with whom he had worked in films like 10 or Victor Victoria.

In 2004 Edwards received an Honorary Oscar for his film career.

Here is the legendary party scene from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
