Blake Edwards, director, writer, producer and husband of Julie Andrews has floated up the moon river to heaven at the age of 88. Blake was surrounded by his wife and family when he died from complications of pneumonia at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica last night.
Blake’s publicist tells The Associated Press that he was hospitalized about two weeks ago. At the time of his death, Blake was working on a stage musical version of The Pink Panther.
Rest in peace, Blake and thanks for Victor/Victoria, S.O.B., 10, The Pink Panther, Revenge of the Pink Panther (don’t judge, Dyan Cannon is in it), The Great Race, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
