10 Fascinating and Fabulous Cultural Eccentrics
March 15, 2015 § Leave a comment
This month, we celebrate the lives of two great cultural eccentrics: Albert Einstein and Edith “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale. The German-born theoretical physicist, who smoked cigarette butts he picked up off the street, would have been 135 today. Grey Gardens resident Little Edie’s unusual life is being revisited during a Film Forum screening of the 1975 documentary Grey Gardens, by Albert Maysles (who sadly passed away earlier this month) and brother David Maysles. Since Einstein and Little Edie have left us with so many strange and fascinating stories, we’re looking at the lives of other famous eccentrics who did it their way.
