Grey Gardens: High Society (HBO)

I can't wait for this movie to come out. It follows the lives of two of Jackie Kennedy's uber-wealthy relatives who go from riches to rags in the most heartbreaking, yet dignified way. I would love to find the 1975 documentary.

I've been wanting to watch it too but I don't get pay channels. Drew is in it and I really like her.

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.

If you haven't seen the documentary yet, see it see it see it! Every once in a while little glimpses of it pop into my head. It's great.

I really want to see both films, but I've got it in my head that I should see the original documentary FIRST! Afterall, wouldn't one enjoy the new movie more if they had the first one in the back of their mind as a reference point? Gotta find that doc!

The documentary is fascinating. They play it on Sundance or IFC once in a blue moon. Love your blog!!
