Trivia

Filmmaker Rick McKay starred Elaine Stritch in his award-winning feature documentary, "Broadway: The Golden Age." Soon after he followed her through rehearsals with a camera and crew to create and produce the segment "Elaine Stritch: At Liberty" for EGG: the arts show" on PBS. Much of that footage, the only shot of the original show's rehearsals, appears in the HBO documentary, where McKay is credited. Stritch also appears in McKay's sequel to "Broadway: The Golden Age."

She must eat nails for breakfast . . .
9 June 2002 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Saw this on tv in New York City and couldn't take my eyes off this old broad. Tougher than hell. Looks like she eats nails for breakfast, but she does deliver the goods. Last of the old time troupers. I really appreciated that the filmmaker followed Stritch through the whole rehearsal process and right up to opening night. I saw a similar piece on 60 minutes, but it was way lighter and had less edge, information or bite.
