I am fast becoming obsessed with ‘Grey Gardens’ a 1975 documentary by the Maysles brothers. The all singing, all dancing Little Edie Beale Bouvier is astounding, hilarious, tragic, eccentric, sad, this is the best docu I have seen in years and has to be the most quotable ever.

“This is the best thing to wear for today, you understand. Because I don’t like women in skirts and the best thing is to wear pantyhose or some pants under a short skirt, I think. Then you have the pants under the skirt and then you can pull the stockings up over the pants underneath the skirt. And you can always take off the skirt and use it as a cape. So I think this is the best costume for today.” – Little Edie
Just writing about it makes me want to watch it again…
