Blake Edwards director of “Pink Panther” series & “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” dies at age 88

Blake Edwards, who directed notable dramas such as “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “Days of Wine and Roses” but was perhaps best known for his comedies, including “Victor/Victoria”, “The Party”, and seven “Pink Panther” films — died last night in Santa Monica after suffering complications related to pneumonia. He is survived by his wife Julie Andrews, who memorably sent up her own image in the Edwards film S.O.B.

Other notable contributions were: “Peter Gunn”, “My Sister Eileen”, “The Party” (1968), “The Great Race” (1965) and “Skin Deep” (1989).
