"Little Edie" from Grey Gardens
Those unfamiliar with the Grey Gardens story can read a quick summary at Wikipedia, or explore it in depth at Grey Gardens Online.
The embedded photo (posted for the feline photobomb) shows "Little Edie" in 1972, at the time the documentary was being filmed. The LIFE online site has a rather nice photoessay showing Little Edie in 1938 and images of her mother and the mansion and grounds.
I thought the 2009 HBO film was rather good; I have not seen the more famous 1975 documentary.
