Every Moment Is Priceless
9 April 2002 | by (Streeb Greebling Acres) – See all my reviews

My all time favorite screen actress and star of early 'Dreamland' Production's Edith Massey had this short documentary filmed about her at the time "Female Trouble" was being shot (circa '74)

For those who don't know Edith Massey she was the larger than life lady who brought us The Egg Lady (Pink Flamingos), Ida Nelson (Female Trouble), Queen Carlotta of Mortville (Desperate Living), Cuddles (Polyester) these were her largest screen roles and in every inch of film her loveable personality and enjoyment of what she was doing shines through.

Anyone who has had the pleasure of hearing her speak will never forget that wonderful voice, her delivery of lines from "Egg's Egg's Egg's" (Pink Flamingos), "You stole my Gator Away" (Female Trouble), "Seize her and f**k her!" (Desperate Living) to "At first I thought he was walking his dog, then I realised it was his date" (Polyester) have such charector that she is hard to forget. Fools and simpletons have in the past poured scorn over Edith and her performances, we should feel sorry for those gimps that have closed minds.

She is obviously a wonderful person, with a great circle of friends and an often harrowing life. Edith tells us of her days as a V Girl, A madam, A matchbox seller and a Hobo .

Friends of mine who didn't even know who she was, watched the film and said it was one of the most entertaining documentary's ever made, and I have to agree. Even though it is only 15 or so minutes long, every moment is gold.

Go on revel in Edith, you won't be let down
