Blake Edwards: Film director, screenwriter and producer best known for 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' and the Pink Panther series
Saturday 18 December 2010
The director, writer and producer Blake Edwards made such durable films as Breakfast at Tiffany's, starring Audrey Hepburn as the entrancing Holly Golightly, Victor/Victoria, the amusing musical farce about sexual identity starring hiswife, Julie Andrews, and perhaps his most famous triumphs, the Pink Panther films, starring Peter Sellers as the bumbling French detective Clouseau.

The picture above right illustrated a front page story about the death of the Nazi war criminal, Samuel Kunz, on 23 November. We have since been told that the image is not, in fact, that of Samuel Kunz, but the Croatian actor Ljubomir Jurkovic. We are happy to make the position clear and apologise to Mr Jurkovic for the error.

Forensic evidence is slim to non-existent. They have few credible witnesses or obvious lines of inquiry. And, as if to add insult to injury, detectives investigating the high-profile murder of Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen last week managed, quite by accident, to prompt their only potential suspect to kill himself.

Mario Monicelli, often called "the father of Italian screen comedy", was one of the Italian cinemas greatest craftsmen, a director whose prolific output (over 70 films) included several masterpieces, such as the superb caper comedy I Soliti Ignoti (1958), and the biting satire La Grande Guerra (1959), which won him Venice's Golden Lion award.

François Ozon's drama begins, ominously, with a beautiful couple injecting heroin in a Paris apartment. "Not another junkie film" is the immediate thought, but it's nothing of the sort. The man dies. The woman, Mousse (Isabelle Carré), survives, waking up after several weeks to discover that she is pregnant.

For some novels, the first-person form seems extraordinarily well chosen, and so it is here. Louie, the narrator, is a TV writer on a superior TV cop show, Northie (Lewis's own experience as a writer on Hill Street Blues no doubt comes in handy). The novel looks back at his whole life, from the time his father, a TV producer, left home for another woman, deftly laying bare the tensions this produced between Louie and both his parents; his uneasy relationships with friends, women and colleagues; the arc of his writing career; his failed attempt to preserve the integrity of his show; and his efforts to get closer to his father as his own star rises and his father's declines.
