Personal Quote:

What is important in life and art? You know, when I was very young, I thought it didn't matter what happened to me when I died so long as my work was immortal. As I age, I think, Well, perhaps if I had to trade dying right now and being immortal was just living on, I would choose living on. See more »

Trivia:

So brief was her 70s marriage to lyricist Sheldon Harnick of Fiddler on the Roof (1971) fame, the joke went that Elaine got custody of the cake. See more »
