One of the funniest and most enduring performers around. She lived a long and very full life.

She made few apologies in her career, describing herself as a "Catholic, diabetic, alcoholic, pain in the ass."

RIP, Ms Stritch.

Yes, SRS, she will definitly be missed by me. Earlier this year I watched her series with Donald Sinden, "Two's Company", three episodes--in order--in the morning before I went out on my errands. Thank you YouTube. Although I was watching alone, I would often burst out laughing at the the repostes. I remembered them from the late 70s on KPBS in San Diego. Really nearly forty years ago!!!

I also saw videos of her one woman show. What a Golden Girl she would have been, not that Bea Arthur was chopped liver in that series.


RIP Elaine.

That program was where I first discovered her; the episodes were on the old Arts and Entertainment cable channel (when it was still mostly really good arts and entertainment)! That would have been in the mid-80s. I couldn't tell you the various plot lines now, but I remember laughing out loud through the whole series.

Good feature on her on CBS Sunday Morning today. Also, on Friday night the lights on Broadway were dimmed for a minute in her memory.

Eileen Stritch made her Broadway debut in 1947, in "Angel in the Wings," wherein she introduced a song called "Civilization." This became an immense hit for Danny Kaye and the Andrews Sisters -- "Bingo, bango, bongo, I don't want to leave the Congo..."

Does anyone know if any recording of Ms. Stritch singing this song exists?

Elaine Stritch sang "Civilization" on the Ben Bagley album Great Revues Revisited and also in the show (and CD and DVD) Elaine Stritch at Liberty.
