Is anyone else excited about the HBO movie GREY GARDENS premiering on April 18? Well I for one can't wait to see it. Loved the documentary. Loved the musical. And I must say that I am suddenly very optimistic about the HBO movie after watching the trailer. What brilliant casting it has! Drew Barrymore, especially, channels the fab and crazy Little Edie. Do we see a lot of Emmys and Golden Globes in the future for the cast and the movie a la JOHN ADAMS from last year?

Check out the trailer and let me know what you think. And let's regroup here after April 18 to discuss.

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.
