I've posted this before, but I think its worth a reprise: While filming LWT's "Two's Company" in the late 1970's she negotiated as part of her contract that LWT paid for a suite at the Dorchester for her time in London, with a white Rolls Royce as her transport. The parties she used to host were famous for the Martinis that were being served - a healthy shot of gin and a butler would wander through the guests spraying vermouth through an old style atomiser in the general direction of the glasses.

when she and her husband John 'Muffin May' Bay lived at the Savoy from 1973 to 1982?

"...It's well known that the American star of TV sitcom Two's Company, Elaine Stritch, lives in the Dorchester..."

Stritch and Bay married – a section of her solo show dealt with the happiness of this union – and lived in London at the Savoy hotel. Spotting the opportunities of this sojourn, LWT, whose headquarters was within walking distance of the Savoy, cannily came up with Two's Company.

When they were filming that forgettable sitcom they did together. Richard Griffiths was constantly defending her erratic behaviour because she'd told him she was suffering from flu and was on antibiotics. His sympathy ended abruptly when the annoyed channel bosses entered her dressing room to find her passed out, surrounded by empty bottles. Griffiths then told her to sober up, which earned him a torrent of vile abuse, so he warned her that where he came from, the men smacked women about for that kind of talk. She was so taken aback that she shut up and started behaving herself.
Besides, it's Elaine Stritch: Crabby Bitch.
