Blake Edwards, 1922-2010. R.I.P.

Director Blake Edwards died yesterday of pneumonia. He was 88.

Edwards directed films such as Days of Wine and Roses, Breakfast at Tiffany's, 10 and Victor/Victoria.

I suspect however that when most people think of Blake Edwards they think of his collaboration with Peter Sellers in six Pink Panther movies made during the 1960s and 1970s. You can never go wrong with Inspector Clouseau.

Edwards is survived by his wife, actress Julie Andrews (to whom he was married for over 40 years) and their five children.
