Grey Gardens Easter Egg - "Little Edie" Beale Interview from 2001

1. After the end credits of the movie, there is a chapter of just color bars (Chapter 25).
2. Fast forward through the color bars, and eventually the start to dissolve into a black and white photograph of "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale.
3. Rewind slightly and you will hear the beginning of a phone interview between "Little Edie" and one of the film makers, Albert Maysles.
4. The interview runs about 5 minutes and you will see older stills of "Little Edie" (some with the Maysles brothers) while you listen.

The interview refers to the 2000 Presidential Election and Edie talks about Gore losing. Since the disc was released in 2001, and Little Edie died early in 2002, the interview must have taken place that year.

After watching "Grey Gardens," it is fascinating to gain some insight into what happened to "Little Edie" nearly 25 years after the film was made. I couldn't quite give it 10 eggs as all of the photographs during the interview are from years earlier, before the interview took place. It would have been nice to see what "Little Edie" looked like too, but at least we hear her. (Rumor has it that she didn't allow any pictures to be taken of her in later years.)
