It was such a pleasure serving as a consultant on this HBO documentary about the Statue of Liberty, directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato. I remember picking up a call a few years ago out of the blue from Diane von Furstenberg who said, “You’ve gotten me into a lot of trouble.” She had read Liberty’s Torch and realized she wanted to be part of the story. She went on to create the Liberty Museum and executive produce and star in this documentary. Watch if you want to feel good about the people who share this nation. And my favorite part: to be reminded that something is kitsch when the emotion behind it is too big for the object.
