  • Movie for a Sunday afternoon: "The Party"(1968)

    You Tube ^ | 1968 | Blake Edwards
    Today being New Year's Eve Eve so to speak is the inspiration for this Sunday's feature. The triumvirate of Peter Sellers, Blake Edwards and Henry Mancini's only non-Inspector Clouseau comedy. It basically concerns a blacklisted Indian actor who gets accidentally invited to a swank Hollywood party and the ensuing chaos that occurs. It's a very loosely structured film but makes for an amusing time capsule of 1968 Hollywood. Worth watching if you're a fan of Sellers, Edwards and/or Mancini.

  • ‘Pink Panther’ director Blake Edwards: 1922-2010

    Blake Edwards, comedy director, Julie Andrews husband and Peter Sellers star-maker, has died at the age of 88. He directed “The Pink Panther,” the original, not the Roberto Benigni/Steve Martin versions, and “A Shot in the Dark” and “10″ and “SOB,” a pretty entertaining send-up of over-the-hill Hollywood. He also did “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “Days of Wine and Roses,” “Wild Rovers,” “The Party.” The one that made perhaps the biggest splash was his gender-bending (and still old fashioned) farce “Victor/Victoria.”

    Brother of Former Sen. John Edwards Sentenced to Jail The Associated Press RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Former senator John Edwards' younger brother will spend 60 days in a Colorado jail after pleading guilty to a decade-old drunken driving charge. Wesley Blake Edwards, 40, was pulled over in a Denver suburb in late 1993 and charged with driving under the influence, careless driving and operating a vehicle without a license. Edwards, who lost his license after three drunken driving convictions, failed to show up in an Arapahoe County, Colo., courtroom in 1994. The charges resurfaced when his brother, then a U.S....

    Wesley Blake Edwards — better known as the kid brother of vice presidential nominee John Edwards — is scheduled to go on trial today in Colorado, answering 10-year-old charges of driving while intoxicated. Wesley Edwards has been arrested on numerous occasions for driving drunk. He has skipped out of court appearances. So, while he finally faces the music, political junkies must be wondering: Is he Roger Clinton lite? Or perhaps the second coming of Billy Carter? Democrats would probably like to sweep Wesley Edwards under the rug. They shouldn't, for two reasons: John Edwards' tribulations with his younger sibling only...

    Few would suspect that the portly, rough-and-ready Wesley Blake Edwards, 39, is the younger brother of John Edwards, the svelte US vice-presidential nominee on the Democratic ticket. Fewer still will have heard of Wesley, an electrician who has become a minor embarrassment to his famous and wealthy sibling. After failing to appear on a drink-driving charge more than 10 years ago, according to state records, he is still wanted by police in Colorado. After drink-driving convictions in 1985, 1987 and 1990, Mr Edwards's driving licence was permanently revoked and he spent a week in prison. Last August he pleaded guilty...

    Sen. John Edwards' little brother has an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Colorado and has thumbed his nose at more than $800 in fines for driving infractions. Wesley Blake Edwards, 39, has been a terror on the road for more than two decades. He has been arrested four times for drunken driving, twice been sentenced to a week in jail for DWI and lost his right to drive in four states. But even after his license was suspended and revoked, he repeatedly got back behind the wheel - only to be stopped by police again. He is currently a...

    Sen. John Edwards strode through North Carolina's courtrooms in the 1980s and made his reputation as a lawyer. His little brother, Blake, saw plenty of courtrooms then, too - as a defendant. While his illustrious brother won legal victories and earned millions, Wesley Blake Edwards racked up speeding tickets, license suspensions and impaired-driving convictions. In 1987, he served seven days in jail for driving under the influence. Three years later, he permanently lost his driver's license when he was arrested for driving under the influence for a third time. Despite being banned from driving, Blake Edwards was pulled over in...
