Lot Essay

Wednesday, July 13, 1977
Cabbed up to Rockefeller Plaza to the Warner Communications offices to see Pelé, the soccer player who was being photographed for Interview. He was adorable, he remembered meeting me at Regine’s once. We were on the thirtieth floor. He’s sort of funny-looking, but then when he smiles he looks beautiful. He has his own office up there, and they’re making Pelé t-shirts and hats and cartoons.
