'Pink Panther' Filmmaker at His Best Handling More Subtle Fare - Both Comedies and Dead Serious Dramas

28 May 2017 8:10 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Blake Edwards: Director of the 'Pink Panther' movies – and Julie Andrews' husband for more than four decades – was at his best handling polished comedies and a couple of dead serious dramas.

Hardy knows the character inside and out, but there are so many elements thrown into the mix — Hardy cites Bill Sikes from “Oliver Twist,” Marlow from Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness,” Hannibal Lecter, “an irascible kind of Duke” and “maybe even a werwolf!” in his ever-growing »
