(p.62) Chapter 5 Blake Edwards and the High Times
Henry Mancini

John Caps

University of Illinois Press

This chapter focuses on Mancini's successful partnership with Blake Edwards. The rising star of Mancini also brought Edwards up in the world. Edwards' success in television more or less assured he could return to the movies with a lot more clout than he had known just a few years before at Universal. The two were a study in contrasts; on the one side, Mancini was curious and disciplined at work, deferential and ingenuous in person, and on the other, Edwards was conceptual and uncompromising in his profession, friendly and explosive and inscrutable in private. That natural clash is almost completely masked in the work they eventually did together, but it would later cause some problems in regard to Mancini's output. Mostly, though, the presence of Blake Edwards in Mancini's career had a wildly positive and prosperous effect. Their notable collaborations include Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) and The Pink Panther (1964).
