Director Blake Edwards, best known for his "Pink Panther" film series and "Breakfast at Tiffany's," has died at the age of 88, his publicist said Thursday.

Edwards passed away Wednesday night of complications from pneumonia at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, California, publicist Gene Schwam said.

Edwards' wife, actress Julie Andrews, and other members of his family were beside him, Schwam said.

Edwards was the recipient of an honorary Oscar in 2003, when he was praised for establishing himself as one of Hollywood's true comedy auteurs.

Edwards is credited with directing 46 titles, including "Victor Victoria," "S.O.B.," "10," and the Pink Panther series.
Edwards was particularly noted for his creation of the role of Inspector Clouseau in the Panther series, a character played by Peter Sellers, with whom Edwards became an iconic filmmaker for comedies.
Blake Edwards + Peter Sellers = Magic. Wonderfull filmaker. He will be missed, but his work will be enjoyed and copied forever.
