In response to our earlier post about the exclusion of Rene Ricard's photo from "Edie: Girl On Fire" Sarah Weiss writes to reassure us that Rene will be in the movie:
It is true that the absence of photos of Rene Ricard in Edie: Girl On Fire is a glaring omission and one which the entire Girl On Fire teams deeply regrets. Most of the photos in the book are photos of Edie with others and as hard as we tried, we found no photos of Edie & Rene together. Rene was not only hot in the 60's, but he is also one of the best interviews that was done for the book and that is why is voice is so clearly represented. You can also be sure that he will be a huge presence in the upcoming film version of Girl on Fire. Here are 2 of our favorite photos of Rene from that era.
For Rene's sake we hope that "Girl on Fire" the movie is better than "Edie: Factory Girl," which opened in LA at the end of December and was panned by everybody.
