The great dame of the Great White Way

While she may today be best known for her role as Jack Donaghy's demonic mother on the sitcom "30 Rock", Elaine Stritch has lived a long and eventful life both on stage and in front of the cameras. In this immediate and charming documentary, she shares stories of success and setbacks, and demonstrates just why it is she has earned a reputation for being a larger-than-life character. And while fans of the feisty 88-year-old will undoubtedly be pleased, the film offers a perfect introduction to this unique Broadway legend and her work.
