Flix, 9:40 p.m. ET

 
This is the original 1975 documentary, not the 2009 HBO telemovie in which Drew Barrymore gives an amazing performance as Edith “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale, and Jesssica Lange an equally impressive one as Edie’s mother, Edith Bouvier Beale. They share a name, a rich lineage, and a now-decrepit house – and in this Maysles Brothers documentary, the real women are even more astoundingly hypnotic than the actresses who eventually played them.
