Fun Look at Massey

Love Letter to Edie (1975)

*** (out of 4)

Edith Massey will always be remembered for her role in John Waters' 1972 film PINK FLAMINGOS and this fourteen-minute short has her re-enacting a few things as well as giving viewers a chance to see who she really is. LOVE LETTER TO EDIE is a very entertaining movie and especially if you're a fan of the actress. She's certainly a character unlike any other and this short does a nice job at giving us a look at her when she's not acting in movies. She talks about always hoping to be in the pictures, although one can assume she never figured she'd become known for the type of roles she did. I really enjoyed this short because it gives us a chance to see Edith working in her shop as well as just getting to see her clown around. The re-enactments certainly aren't ground-breaking or anything but fans of the actress will enjoy this.
