Thursday, December 16, 2010
Most New Yorkers know "Breakfast at Tiffany's" from the Academy-Award winning Henry Mancini song "Moon River," starring Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly and George Peppard as Paul Varjak. The 1961 romantic comedy was directed by Blake Edwards, who died Wednesday night due to complications of pneumonia.
Edwards, 88, was known for his witty dialogue in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" as well as in the movies "10" and "Pink Panther." He is remembered by his wife, the actress Julie Andrews. Here are scenes from some of his most famous films.
