Movie Monday: Blake Edwards Dies at 88

Posted Dec 20 2010 12:23pm
No time for movies last week with all our holiday stuff going on, but I just read that Blake Edwards, the famous Hollywood writer/director and husband to Julie Andrews, died last week from pneumonia at age 88.  Did you know he had CFS?  He appeared in the CFS documentary I Remember Me (an older film but highly recommended).

And guess what?  The Hollywood Reporter's obituary of Blake Edwards actually mentions his CFS diagnosis!  Although it wasn't a secret, he didn't seem to mention it very often - I'm guessing he wanted people to focus on his accomplishments, not his illness - so I was surprised to see it included in this article.

He was a talented man and will be missed.  Favorite Blake Edwards' movies, anyone?  Of course, the Pink Panther movies were classics, but I didn't realize he also directed Breakfast at Tiffany's, which I loved.
