Wouldn't that be "spoons full"?

Actually, I think it should be 'a spoon full' (from the song ya know).

The "all those" made it plural, but I like your thinking. Here, all this time, I was thinking it was "Yenta". :old:

Only seven (mostly nonsensical) posts and three and a half years since the last one. Makes the Bergman thread seem like Ledger or Suharto. Does anyone know anything about Blake Edwards, such as why he's on the list? He's not old and he's not ill, seems to me.

Well, he's 85, no spring chicken.

He's certainly very frail & needs either a walking stick (or mostly) a wheelchair to get around now.

I think it could be a surprise DL hit - Edwards has been prominent on my long-shortlist for some while but I can't determine whether it is age or illness (possbily Parkinson's) that is why he is so frail now, which is why he never makes the top 20.

I agree with you about the thread, mind.

Whilst checking something on Stone Freedberg (on page 2 of the article as it happens), Julie Andrews confirms husband Blake Edwards is busy working on a musical. So maybe not as frail as I thought... :flame:

Surely that would depend if he's going to dance or not

Blake Edwards has exhibited his artwork for the first time in twenty five years. He doesn't look very close to death in his photo.

Wel, well. With a nice christmas hit we still might make a nice round ten.

I rather like his Pink Panther films, I'm sorry to see him go.

A more appropriate demise for him would have been to be shot in the dark.

Does this mean we will have three deaths pending a write up?

The much overdue write-ups now almost done - but Blake's headline seems to be a tough one.
Such a pity he wasnt number "10" of the year.

"Breakfast at Stiffany's" ?
