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."

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.

Her candor is laudable.
8 May 2006 | by EASee 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.
