Elaine Stritch: My Drunk and Sober Lodestar
Huffington Post - over 2 years
When I met Elaine Stritch, she was sober, and I was drunk. It was 1998 at a book party for Joan Collins at the bygone social X-ray hangout Mortimer's. The party is a blur of martinis mixed with the floating heads of other women of a certain age: Nan Kempner, Arlene Dahl, Blaine Trump. It was my idea of heaven. I'd moved to New York from a small town in the South to drink at parties like this. I was the publicist for Ms. Collins' book, which is how I got in the door. At 30, I thought I was jaded when it came to bending elbows with the rich and famous. Until I saw Her. Across the room stood tall and boney, whiskey-voiced, seventy-something Ms. Stritch. She was chatting in a corner with a younger woman. This was before she had had the biggest hit of her life with her one-woman show At Liberty about her career and struggle with the bottle.

Writer Peter Evans talked, in London, with the movie star who has been named "the most beautiful woman ever." These talks and Evans' ideas have now come out in "Ava Gardner: The Secret Conversations." Toward the end of this book, Ava became quite exercised over the easily believed idea that "The Mob" ever gave her beloved Frank Sinatra anything, especially during the singer-actor's fallow period in the early Fifties. This was a time when Ava's own career was booming but Sinatra couldn't get himself arrested. The Ava-Frank romance was anything but calm. They loved one another but could not get along. Ava was adamant and furious in defending Frank, during the period that his career was in ruins. She insisted no criminal elements ever helped him back to success. "I did!" ...
