Decades before the Broadway musical and Drew Barrymore–powered biopic, Grey Gardens was already legendary as a one-of-a-kind documentary portrait of two fascinating women: the Edith Bouvier Beales—mother Big Edie and daughter Little Edie, aunt and cousin to Jackie O and among the upper echelons of East Coast society until… something went wrong. Twenty years later, in 1975, Albert and David Maysles recorded the aftermath in the crumbling Hamptons mansion where the Edies remained, living lives of great style, consequence, and refinement—never mind the raccoons gnawing the walls and feces everywhere.
