Love Letter to Edie - "I love being a star," says Edith Massey, in this tongue-in-cheek film "biography" which traces her life from a foster home, to a career as a B girl on the Block, a barmaid at Pete's Hotel in Fells Point, owner of the "Miss Edith's Shopping Bag" thrift shop and to the career which has made her famous across the U.S. - as the "glamorous" star of John Waters' underground films. Winner of the Baltimore Film Festival award, 1975. (Robert Maier, 1975, 14 minutes)

Dantini the Magnificent - A film poem, depicting the muted, fanciful life of magician Vincent Cierkes - "Dantini the Magnificent" - who lives in the Fells Point area in Baltimore. Follows him as he plays with the pigeons in his apartment, performs magic tricks for neighborhood children, and bargains at a store on Broadway. Music by Rex Schneider. (Chris Buchman, 1968, 17 minutes)
