One of my absolute favourite directors of comedies. Pick ONE desert island Blake Edwards movie.

I'll have to go with THE PARTY. One of only two films that has had me literally falling out of my seat laughing.

Not a comedy, but DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES.

I have to admit that VICTOR/VICTORIA is one of his greats, but I don't own that one yet, so by default (based on all the different PINK PANTHER movies that I own):

THE RETURN OF THE PINK PANTHER (1975)

Lots of good ones. Panthers, The Party, Soldier in the Rain, Tiffanys. I'll go with 10. It bowled me over when I first saw it and still have plenty of great memories with it. I must have seen it 20 times.

I have to go with Victor/Victoria. Looking at his list of films I can't honestly say I'm a fan of his work. Nothing really clicked for me. Victor/Victoria being the only film that I can say I enjoyed. Julie Andrews, Robert Preston and James Garner, Leslie Ann Warren, John Rhys-Davies. That's a pretty good cast of characters.

I tell you, it was difficult NOT picking that movie. Probably Dudley Moore's finest performance. But it's not supposed to be easy :-)
