The new documentary 'Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me,' chronicles the Broadway legend and actress as she takes the stage to sing some of Stephen Sondheim's classics, boldly faces her own mortality, and continues to defy conventions both as a woman and as an older woman in the entertainment industry -- and she makes it look so damn effortless with her brassiness, her courage, and her relentless honesty. Stritch removes the novelty from the idea of a living legend, and remains one of the most inspirational role models for women in entertainment.
