RIP, Elaine Stritch. You will never be forgotten! Check her out in “Romance and Cigarettes” (James Gandolfini’s mother), “September” (1987 Woody Allen movie), “Autumn In New York” (with Richard Gere) and “Out To Sea” with Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon. Her CD (“Stritch”), one woman Broadway show (“At Liberty”) and recently released documentary (“Shoot Me”) are also wonderful.
