Rest in Peace Blake Edwards

A great comic light died today: Blake Edwards, one of my very favorite directors, passed away yesterday in Santa Monica.  Director of legendary comedies such as The Pink Panther series, The Party, Victor/Victoria, and (clearly, not a comedy) Breakfast at Tiffany's, he was married to actress and muse Julie Andrews (for 41 years: ever notice how most long standing hollywood marriages involved comedians?).

Here's a clip where Edwards talks about his life with Andrews:

And a classic scene from my favorite of his films:

P.S. I think you should all know that I am doing my hair like that lady's for my own party tonight.
