I got an e-mail from the Libra Man with an update on Michael Sucsy's Grey Gardens feature film. It's a short but great little story about Sucsy surprising Lois Wright with Drew Barrymore and a visit to Grey Gardens. He's promised more information about the visit when he gets it. How excited are you?
I had a short phone call with Lois Wright yesterday, who said that she had a visit from Mike Sucsy on Friday, and was surprised by Drew Barrymore, whom I guess is out in the Hamptons with Mike doing some research. The three of them went out to visit Doris Francisco, who was very close to Big Edie, and who never sees anyone (well, hardly anyone). And then they went to Grey Gardens the house.
Lois says Drew couldn't be nicer, and they stopped by the Post Office on their trip and Drew carried in a package for her. Just thought I'd pass this along. I expect I'll have a much longer chat with Lois after the holidays when I'm back home, and I'll send on any other interesting info and gossip.
I received the following followup from the Libra Man:
I got some of the facts wrong in my first e-mail to you. Drew Barrymore and Mike Sucsy visited Lois, and all three went to visit Doris Francisco, but only Drew and Mike visited Grey Gardens on that day.
