i just found this photograph of genius playwright lillian hellman. lillian wrote miles of brilliant lines but i would kneel before her if all she'd written was 'the little foxes.' this is one of my fave films. the cast is a dream: bette davis, herbert marshall, teresa wright, and to top it off, dan duryea. maybe the photographer robert mapplethorpe was a fan of this image of lillian. the photos he did of myself and andrew, for the release of our first record, are so similar.
