Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, July 17, 2014

Broadway great Elaine Stritch has died, her friend, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, told ABC News. She was 89. Stritch's career began in the 1940s and included her fair share of appearances in movies, including Woody Allen's September (1987) and Small Time Crooks (2000), and on television; well into her 80s, she played a recurring role on the NBC comedy 30 Rock. Stritch won a 2001 Tony Award for her one-woman play Elaine Stritch at Liberty.

Stritch might be the only actor to work as a bartender after starring on Broadway, and she was completely unabashed about her good-time-girl attitude. "I'm not a bit opposed to your mentioning in this article that Frieda Fun here has had a reputation in the theater, for the past five or six years, for drinking," she said to a reporter for the New York Times in 1968. "I drink and I love to drink, and it's part of my life."

It's all too much.
