(All apologies on this late tribute to Blake Edwards. Various circumstances prevented this from being posted last week.)
The man who gave us "The Pink Panther" passed away last Wednesday evening from complications from pneumonia. He was 88. He is survived by his wife, actress Julie Andrews.
Along with "The Pink Panther", Edwards brought us "Victor Victoria," "S.O.B.," "10," and "Breakfast At Tiffany." Early in his career, which started in 1942, he served as a writer and actor.
