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."

What a Diva,
6 July 2004 | by (Vienna, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Elaine Stritch is one of our national treasures that for to long has been over looked for the acknowledgments she so richly deserves. In my opion it took grace and grit to reveal so much of ones life in front of so many people for so long a time. Ms. Stritch is also a wonderful example of how someone with diabetes can accomplish their goals. I mean just look at her! she's got a great figure, she moves with the grace and energy of someone much younger then herself and she is so Honest and I for one would like to know more about the lady, she is an inspiration to those of us that are younger (60)Had I met her at a meeting I would have ask her to be my sponsor for I am the adult child of an alcoholic and a 22 year member of Al-Anon, so I had a deeper understanding of her struggles. THANK YOU Elaine for GIVING SO MUCH TO SO MANY FOR SO LONG, oh, and your not anywhere alone, John, is with you as are the toughts and prayers of all of us who love and admire you. Carol A. Rodgers(walkswithin)
