Blake Edwards

A couple of weeks ago Blake Edwards, one of the great directors of Old Hollywood, died at the age of 88.

Edwards directed an impressive list of classic comedies, including The Pink Panther films and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

They’re so good, we’re willing to forgive him for that awful Bruce Willis post-Moonlighting vehicle Blind Date.

His other impressive achievement was marrying the delectable Julie Andrews in 1969 and staying married to her for 41 years. Respect.

In terms of our Dead Pool, Mr Edwards’ sad passing was presciently predicted by Kate, awarding her 12 points and placing her in the lead.

And that’s actually it for the year. Congratulations Kate!

Yearly wrap-up to follow. And thanks for playing.
