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: [of resolving to control her drinking] Two drinks a day, *on* *or* *off* stage. Two drinks a day. *Two* drinks a day. TWO drinks a day. It *doesn't* *work*! Not when you want eleven. And not when you start shopping for wineglasses in the vase department at Bloomingdale's.

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.
