HBO's Grey Gardens Premieres


Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange star in HBO's Grey Gardens tonight at 8:00 p.m. EST. After digging the two documenaries, I'm looking forward to this version.

We'll be watching for the DVD. We cancelled HBO a while back, but this really looks interesting. Both actresses look like they've done interesting work in the roles.

*shrug* Insanity in its myriad forms is no stranger...only the color of the yarn changes the tapestry.

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.
