Blake Edwards, R.I.P.
He's known for a panther that's pink
and driving Jack Lemmon to drink
Had Breakfast, and then
Bo Derek as Ten,
and one that he wrote with his shrink

Edwards' many films include the Pink Panther series, Breakfast at Tiffanys, Days of Wine and Roses (with Lee Remick and Jack Lemmon as an alcoholic couple), Ten, and his semi-autobiographical 1986 film That's Life, which he wrote with his psychiatrist.
