Grey Gardens Movie

I hope Saturday night at 8:00 everyone will be watching 'Grey Gardens' movie on HBO! If you don't have it, find someone who does and barge in (thats what I'll be doing!). I've been waiting for this movie to come out since I first heard about it a year ago.Drew Barrymore, who plays Little Edie, has been out and about promoting the film, doesn't she look great in this vintage dress and hairstyle? And if you haven't already, please check out Visual Vamp's blog post about her relationship with Little Edie -as in she knew her! Fascinating!

I am so excited for this movie and so happy to see that I am not alone in my excitement. I just find them so fascinating!

Only wish we could all see it "ensemble" - I know at the same time, I will feel a little sad for them but at the same time intrigue will take over.

I did watch HBO the other evening and thought the actresses did a wonderful job. Didn't you think? Thanks for directing me to Visual Vamp. What a story and experience she shared. Lovely. -susan

I was told right after filming of the HBO film wrapped up in the fall of 2007, that I would be blown away at the last scene, where Edie sings Tea For Two at Reno Sweeny, and I was ! I had supplied the film company with the only recording in existence of Edie singing the tune, only this wasn't from her actual performance at the club, but rather her singing it just for me at one of my many visits to Grey Gardens. Drew sang it exactly, phrase for phrase as I have it on tape. Edie and I actually met that night at Reno Sweeny, and my relationship with Grey Gardens has now spanned over 3 decades. For our complete review, check out our blog at MyGreyGardens.com (HBO film review by Robb Brawn & Lee Arboreen), and be sure to check our Youtube video uploaded 4/18/09 the same day as the HBO film release.

The last act in the world I'd want to follow would be the genius collaboration between the Maysles brothers and the real Beales. I'm pretty afraid to watch the remake...
