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!
