Blake Edwards, famed director, has passed away. He was 88.
Known for his witty dialogue, Edwards was best known for his work on the ‘Pink Panther’ movies, ’10′, and ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s.’
Edwards, who was married to actress Julie Andrews for nearly 50 years, passed away Wednesday due to complications from pneumonia at a hospital in Santa Monica. He had been in the hospital for nearly two weeks.
His publicist, Gene Schwam, revealed that Edwards had been confined to a wheelchair the last year and a half of his life due to unsuccessful knee surgeries.
“His heart was as big as his talent. He was an Academy Award winner in all respects,” said Schwam, who knew him for 40 years.
