. Filmmaker Blake Edwards, who died last night at the age of 88, directed a ton of movies – some classic and some fairly forgettable, but all (at least all that I've seen) redeeming in some way. Here's the trailer for one of the best:

Breakfast At Tiffany's

And here's the final clip from S.O.B., a less-classic but nonetheless enjoyable and funny Edwards film starring his wife Julie Andrews, along with a bunch of other recognizable people (including – fashion trivia alert!Marisa Berenson).

S.O.B. (1981)

I think a Blake Edwards film festival is definitely in order.
