Edith's mother died unexpectedly of a heart attack today. Edith has left town to be with her family in Connecticut.

Alex and I visited a building at NYU today, where our friend Julie thinks she may be able to sneak us in to shoot the college scenes.

I met today with Ralph Lauren's son Andrew, who is reading for the lead male role tomorrow. He seems a nice enough fellow. Calling on him in his Upper East Side apartment/office somehow made me feel as if I were back in Los Angeles, where the rich don't mind being different from the rest of us.
