Charles Ruas and Karen Achenbach talk to filmmakers Albert Maysles and Ellen Hovde about their documentary Grey Gardens.

They talk about their shooting schedule, the Beales' own involvement in the direction of the film, and the relationship between the directors and their subjects. At 00:47:14 "Little Edie" Beale joins them in the studio and "Big Edie" Beale calls in from their home.
