Elaine Stritch: ‘I Didn’t Declare Retirement’

21 February 2014 11:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When I first see Elaine Stritch—the 89-year-old legendary stage and screen actress—she’s propped in bed. Although she’s been a New York fixture since the 1940s (and spent 18 years living in a room at the Carlyle Hotel), she recently moved to Michigan. But she’s back in town this week to promote her new documentary, “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me.” Her trip will include a screening hosted by Perez Hilton, the film’s midtown premiere and catching a Broadway show (“The Glass Menagerie”) with her pal Bernadette Peters.

On this morning, Stritch has gone viral. She just appeared on “Today,” where she dropped the F-word on live TV. The film’s director, Chiemi Karasawa, tells her that she’s trending on Twitter. “What does it mean to be trending?” Stritch asks from her room in an Upper East Side clubhouse. I tell her. “Oh.” She takes a long pause. »
