Laurence Cutler, founder and owner with his wife, Judy, of the esteemed National Museum of American Illustration, invited us into the museum yesterday and then, sitting in his library, went on camera for a great half-hour of observation about Eileen Slocum and Newport society. Laurence was superb. And the museum is just outstanding, with its collection of paintings by Norman Rockwell, Maxfield Parrish, N.C. Wyeth and all of the other great American illustrators.

On camera

We were shooting again yesterday at 459 Bellevue, putting Eileen's two daughters, Beryl Powell and Margy Quinn, on camera.
To watch a clip from Margy's interview, in which she talks about her mother's diaries, which are a central element in HEDGEROW, click through to the Facebook HEDGEROW page. Margy and Beryl have been enormously helpful to us in production, both on camera and behind the scenes. This Was Margy's second shoot and Beryl's first -- and more to come.
