Director Blake Edwards passed away earlier this week. He'd been making movies for a long time. He directed one of my all-time favorite films:
This was the first movie that I saw at the theatre with a friend and no adults when I was in the 8th grade. Blake Edwards also directed all the (non-Steve Martin) Pink Panther films. I'm a big fan of that series as well, including my favorite which is the only one to not mention The Pink Panther in the title, A Shot in the Dark:
That's Mel Blanc as the voice of the bullet.
