I just now read that Blake Edwards has passed at the age of 88. Best known for his slapstick comedies - the Pink Panther series, for example - he also directed the iconic "Breakfast at Tiffanys" starring Audrey Hepburn. His other comedies include S.O.B. and Victor Victoria (one of my favs).
Edwards' wife - the iconic Julie Andrews - was by his side at his passing.
