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.
