Trivia

Elaine Stritch appears in director Rick McKay's documentary Broadway: The Golden Age, by the Legends Who Were There (2003) and was reunited with McKay at the suggestion of PBS' EGG: the Arts Show creator Jeff Folmsbee, which led to "At Liberty" being filmed for television, with this the only footage of that legendary rehearsal process.

Quotes

Elaine Stritch: [imitating Noel Coward] STRITCHY! Your attempt to keep it light, keep it gay, impossible I'm afraid. The book is not very good, the score is not very good, the direction isn't very good, the choreography is not very good. The leading lady is quite good, indeed, and right now she is alone in her dressing room in tears having a very, very, VERY, large scotch. Take heart, Stritchy! Any leading lady who doesn't do a double take when a nine-foot bear asks her to dance is my kind of actress!

Her candor is laudable.
8 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Picked up the DVD without knowing anything about Elaine Stritch.

More than pleasantly pleased.

Her candor is laudable.

One views her life through a cabaret act, full of song and dance routines... Despite which, one looks into an absolutely "naked" soul.

Interesting to watch this 80 year old woman, whose life has been so difficult, be so alive and dynamic. When most of her compatriots are dead she is continuing to grow and learn and give to us.

For the first half hour or so it was mostly "cute", tolerable but just "cute". The rest of the film grabbed my mind and heart.

Well done. I recommend it highly.
