RIP Blake Edwards

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118029174

I'll be remembering him today by watching A Shot in the Dark, my favorite of the Panther films, which is conveniently available on Instant Netflix: http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/A_...637#height1421

Re: RIP Blake Edwards

Just a few months ago I was treated to a double feature of The Pink Panther and A Shot In The Dark at the Aero Theater. Blake Edwards will be missed.

Re: RIP Blake Edwards

I just watched "10" for the first time the other day. I love the Pink Panther films. I think Skin Deep is underrated too but it is very 80's. I also like Blind Date too. RIP.

Re: RIP Blake Edwards

The glow in the dark condom sequence in Skin Deep is one of the funniest things i've ever seen.

RIP Blake

Re: RIP Blake Edwards

Why did I think he died a few years ago? Who could I have gotten him confused with?

I think I might throw in S.O.B. and lament his passing.

Re: RIP Blake Edwards

My favorite Edwards film is the service comedy, THE PERFECT FURLOUGH (1958), starring Tony Curtis, Janet Leigh and Linda Cristal. OPERATION PETTICOAT'S not bad, either.

I've been enjoying the recent airings of 'Victor/Victoria'. Edwards made some great movies.

Always loved the Pink Panther series. Except for Son of the Pink Panther, of course.

I've also enjoyed Skin Deep and Switch.

Never saw Breakfast at Tiffany's, Blnd Date, or 10.

Re: RIP Blake Edwards

I think it's criminal that basically no one knows it even exists, but 'Wild Rovers' is probably my favorite film from him.

What a cast: Willaim Holden, Karl Malden, Tom Skerritt, Joe Don Baker, Ryan O'Neal, Moses Gunn, Victor French, etc.

Love that film.

Billy Wilder?? (who died in 2002 at age 95) For some reason, I always thought of the two together.
