R.I.P. Blake Edwards: Connoisseur of beautiful women

Not many men are featured on Movie Hotties (defeats the purpose right?), but I think the passing of director Blake Edwards deserves a nod of acknowledgment on our part. The man had a career that spanned close to 70 years in film, and directed classics such as BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, THE PINK PANTHER, 10, and VICTOR/VICTORIA. Growing up, I watched the PINK PANTHER series nonstop as a child (even the lesser ones as the series went along), and without a doubt owe a huge part of my developed sense of humor to both Peter Sellers and Blake Edwards. I also have to show some love to his lesser appreciated sex comedies, A FINE MESS (Ted Danson & Howie Mandel representing) and SKIN DEEP (John Ritter being an awesome manwhore). Viewing them now is an exercise in cheese, but I loved the nudity and naughty humor as a child (being a latchkey kid had it's perks). Plus, any movie that has Jack Tripper having a glow in the dark sword fight with his wang is OK in my book!


I wanted to recognize his knack for working with beautiful women in film. He crafted some of the most recognizable images of his era (Audrey Hepburn & Bo Derek alone will be sealed in a time capsule for generations to come), as well as discovering numerous screen vixens along the way. This is just a taste of the women he worked with, but you get an idea for the kind of top notch quality the man appreciated.


Blake Edwards died of complications from pneumonia today in Santa Monica, CA. He was 88 years old. His wife of 40 years, actress Julie Andrews, was at his side during his passing. That's right, the man had MARY POPPINS/THE SOUND OF MUSIC with him when he went to that great lounge in the sky. Talk about a proper sendoff! Mr. Edwards, we salute you!


Women (from top down): Audrey Hepburn, Bo Derek, Rosanna Arquette, Kim Basinger, Maria Conchita Alonso, Ellen Barkin, and his wife, Julie Andrews.

He had a good run. RIP

On a side note, Rosanna Arquette is one of the hottest women of '80s. Top 5 in my ratings.

R.I.P.

I own Breakfast At Tiffanys and Audrey Hepburn is BEAUTIFUL.

Also that pic of Basinger is AWESOME! She was beautiful in her younger years.

Oh ya....The pic of Arquette is awesome as well. I loved seeing her in Crash and Pulp Fiction.

R.I.P. Blake Edwards

and thanks for the amazing mammaries - I mean, memories!

In retrospect, Bo Derek looked stunning but her face was a little too mannish (it was the 80's, after all.). But Audrey, Kim, Rosanna, Ellen . . . yummy!

(Sorry, Julie, you may have been smokin' back in the day, but fapping to Mary Poppins is too many kinds of weird!).
