Grey Gardens Secret Garden

I know, Grey Gardens has been widely covered throughout the blogshpere and beyond.

But have you seen this picture: Grey Gardens Secret Garden? The perfect place to rest after a walk on the beach.

  3. From the perspective of having not only the original documentary to go by, but also having known "little" Edie personally, I can say that
    the HBO film, starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lang is certainly a perfect tribute to both the original documentary and these two wonderful woman.
    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, more than 30 years ago. 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.
