Now They’re All Gone



Oh dear, Albert Maysles, the genius behind Grey Gardens, died Thursday.

Some, but not by any measure all of my favorite Gray Gardens quotes:

  • If you can’t get a man to propose to you, you might as well be dead.
  • …there’s anything worse than dealing with a staunch woman. S-T-A-U-N-C-H.
  • Edie!  Open a can of pate!
  • … this is the revolutionary costume!

About mrpeenee

A former bon vivant and terror of a number of New Orleans bars in the mad, gay 1980s, I'm now quietly retired and widowed in San Francisco. I have a crooked nose due to an unfortunate Frisbee accident.

  1. ” 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.
