Love Letter to Edie

Directed by Robert Maier

The title of this documentary says it all – truly a love letter, in video form, to the beloved Edith Massey, star of many early John Waters films. Best known for her role as the Egg Lady in Pink Flamingos, this short movie will fill you in on Edie's life before she became a Dreamlander.

It's written and narrated by the goddess herself. Following Edie around her Baltimore thrift store EDITH'S SHOPPING BAG is a trip, but even better are the fantasy sequences and stories about her past.

A DVD of the film is available at lovelettertoedie.com directly from Robert Maier in a newly expanded edition.

1974, color, 16 mm film, 15 minutes
