An Evening with Blake Edwards w/screening of S.O.B.

Synopsis:

Thursday, September 30th at 7:30 p.m.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

An Evening with Blake Edwards Including a screening of his Hollywood satire “S.O.B.”

Presented as an installment of the Jack Oakie Celebration of Comedy in Film

Despite a very diverse and lengthy career, Blake Edwards can’t escape the fact that he made some of the funniest comedies ever. “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” may be romantic, “The Pink Panther’s” Inspector Clouseau may be bumbling, “The Great Race” may be madcap, “The Party” may be mod, “10” may be sexy and “Victor/Victoria” may be musical, but they are all hilarious with a unique Blake Edwards sensibility.

Edwards, the recipient of an Honorary Oscar in 2003, will participate in an onstage conversation on his comedic philosophy and career followed by a well-deserved poke in the eye to Hollywood with a screening of his 1981 film “S.O.B.,” starring Julie Andrews, William Holden, Marisa Berenson, Larry Hagman, Robert Loggia, Stuart Margolin, Richard Mulligan and Robert Preston.
