A Deep Blue Something reference?

Shame on you.

Shame on me for knowing it.

Wow. He did one of my all time favorite movies -- S.O.B. It starred, among other greats, Robert Preston, in the best performance of his career as a drug-addled doctor to the stars.

And the Pink Panther films? When I was a youngster, those were just side-splitting. Adieu, Mr. Edwards. Hollywood is poorer now that you're gone, but infinitely richer to have known you.

S.O.B. was a fantastic movie. Wickedly funny, dry hilarity, tits...it had it all.

Richard Mulligan, William Holden, Robert Preston, Loretta Swit, Rosanna Arquette, Marisa Berenson(tits), Julie Andres (tits), Larry Hagman, Robert Vaughn...the movie was funny as hell.

This makes me sad.

Both because he's gone, and because I feel like a douche 'cuz the first thing I thought was "he's still alive?"


/and I know THAT isn't why I'm a total douche. It's other stuff entirely

I love The Pink Panther movies. So I say thanks and R.I.P. Mr. Edwards.

That said, you also did the horrendous one made after Peter Sellers died using old footage, so I have to say, "What the hell were you thinking then??"

Tonight, I will have a mounful fapping to "10" in his honor.

Gotta love his quote about Julie Andrews "...so sweet she probably has violets between her legs."
She loved the comment so much she sent him violets. They began dating and were later married.

How did Mickey Rooney not win an Oscar for this role?

S.O.B. is a great and hilarious movie. I linked a clip in my headline attempt. I still believe that it was a fairly accurate portrayal of 70's Hollywood.

I hated B@T. he made a load of great movies but that isn't one of them

He also directed an excellent drama call Days of Wine and Rose in which Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick gave Oscar-nominated performances.

Palooka_Joe: How did Mickey Rooney not win an Oscar for this role?


I never saw this movie until a couple years ago when my then-girlfriend made me watch it. It was so weird to have this over-the-top stereotype in an otherwise pretty straightforward drama.

I didn't even realize it was Mickey Rooney at first. I just remember thinking, "Holy shiat, is that a white guy in yellow face?"

The slow motion fight during Kato and Clouseau is one of those scenes I have to turn off because the sound track just breaks me up.

I have to do the same thing during the scene in Blazing Saddles where Gene Wilder talks about how he gave up being a gunfighter.

I laugh so hard I think I'm going to die.

Just this morning, with my 12 year old off from school, I had to talk him in to watching The Party. He took in every laugh there was.

Definitely my favourite Blake Edwards film.

He made some great movies and some terrible ones. Given how hard it is to make a great comedy, the good ones make the bad ones irrelevant. The most important thing is he had a sensibility, which a lot of comedy directors these days lack. Very few mainstream Hollywood comedies feel like they were directed by anyone specific whereas BE's films fell like his, even when they didn't work.

Yeah, I'm a fan.

I loved the Pink Panther movies.

yeah it's what ruins the entire movie for me. it takes a lot to offend me, but that ... i wish he'd be digitally erased and replaced with a broom or a clown.

It's so odd; otherwise, it's a fine movie (and wow, does Hepburn look good in it) and then there's the huge misstep of that character.

Tell me about it. I still can't watch that movie because of the Mickey Rooney character. It's just so very, very wrong.

I would like to personally offer myself to Julie Andrews for the purposes of grief management.

Damn, I just Tivo'd Operation Petticoat, too. Guess I'll head upstairs and turn that on.
 
2010-12-16 09:39:08 PM
CowboyNinjaD That's the source of a very poignant scene in "Dragon; The Bruce Lee Story" where Bruce asks a Swedish girl out & gets farked with on their resteraunt reservations because they're a mixed-race couple & then they go see B@T where Mickey Rooney sets Bruce off & he leaves, then Jim Carrey's ex-wife rushes after him to see what got his panties in a bunch...

My roommate and I just had the following conversation:

Me: Aw, man, Blake Edwards died.
Roommate: Who's that?
Me: A director. He did the Pink Panther films.
Roommate: Oh, that sucks.
Me: Yeah, and he was from Tulsa originally.
Roommate: What? Seriously?
Me: And he directed Operation Petticoat.
Roommate: WHAT? I love that movie! He directed Operation Petticoat and he was from Tulsa? That's awesome!

/Good night, funnyman. You will be missed.
//Operation Petticoat is now in the Netflix queue.
