Grey Gardens (HBO version) on DVD

I am a huge fan of the original documentary Grey Gardens. Since the first time I came upon it years ago I became obsessed with the characters. One in particular. I love "Little Edie Beale". Everything about her is just so amazing to me. She intrigues me. I would have loved to have met such an original individual. She claimed to be a "s-t-a-u-n-c-h" character and she wasn't kidding. Stronger than I could ever imagine and with the most original and daring style. I saw the new HBO version a couple of weeks back and saw that it is out on DVD now. To me there is nothing like the original and as much as I like Drew Barrymore there is no one quite like the real Edie. I told my husband that this year I just may dress up for Halloween (something I don't normally do) and indulge my inner Edie. He always nods his head in agreement without a word. I'll take that to signify fear on his part. (photo via www.ediebeale.com)
