Quotable Quotes:

~ I think Viagra is wonderful if you need it, if you have medical issues, if you've had surgery. I've just never needed it. Frankly, I wouldn't mind if there were an anti-Viagra, something with the opposite effect. I'm not bragging. I'm just lucky. I don't need it.

~ I am interested in entertaining people, in bringing pleasure, particularly laughter, to others, rather than being concerned with 'expressing' myself with obscure creative impressions.

~ A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but is he peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise.

Is Blake Edwards dead or alive? Yes, Blake Edwards is dead.

Blakey (to his friends) was a good man; nay, a great man. A man not like other men. A man who could take pride in his achievements. A man who once took Torquay Utd from League 2 to Champions League Glory on Football Manager 2007. But, no, no. This was not a man who liked to brag. This was a real man; yes, in that old cliche - a man's man. A man whose list of lovers read like a who's who of Who's Who. Katherine "Kitty" Wilder; Sandy Duchamps; Lima Zinelli; Toscanni de Graafschaap; Teddy "Bear" Thomas. Nay, do not judge for, yes, Blake was a bisexual. But Blakey also made films; "movies" in the American argot. "Cinema"; "pictures"; "shows" - Blakey loved 'em all and he embraced them all. His films spanned genres; took in wide vistas of landscape and architecture and shot them all as if they were Heaven itself. Among his best were "Bad Time in Bolton" (1976), "Sad Days for the Sun-Kid" (1984) and the revelatory documentary "Now He's Gonna Show Ya: Old Boys of Virginny Talk" (1992). His work was marked by a distinct human feeling; an ability to divine the mystic in the rational. He favoured wide camera angles and short, punchy, dialogue. He was not a fan of 3-D or even, he claimed in later life, of colour films at all. He claimed never to have seen "Citizen Kane" and his favourite movie (in an oft-qouted, possibly sarcastic remark) "Just Friends" (yes, the Ryan Reynolds/Amy Smart/Anna Faris fandango). His pal Richard "Rusty" Toshack? said of Blakey: "Gee, Blakey was some fella. If I had to spend eternity with just one guy, he'd be the man. I miss him more than words can say."
