announced that it will devote its evening lineup on Monday, December 27th, to honoring the late writer-director-producer Blake Edwards.
Mr. Edwards passed away Wednesday. His wife, Julie Andrews, was at his side.
TCM is preempting a planned evening of science fiction films in order to showcase five of Edwards' best-known movies.
The titles shown will be BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S (1961), DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES (1962), THE PINK PANTHER (1964), VICTOR/VICTORIA (1982), and OPERATION PETTICOAT (1959).
By coincidence, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S was previously scheduled to play on December 30th.
