Beloved comedienne and original Saturday Night Live cast member Gilda Radner has long joined the ranks of legendary comedians. Having died from ovarian cancer at 42, her life and career seemed cut short.
The documentary Love, Gilda aims to explore her rich life by looking at it through her own words and interviews with longtime friends and colleagues. Chevy Chase, Laraine Newman, Paul Shaffer, and Martin Short are all interviewed about their memories of her. Younger comedians like Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and Cecily Strong, no doubt influenced by her work, read excerpts from her diaries.
If you missed this affectionate documentary about one of the country’s greatest comediennes, you can catch Love, Gilda on Digital HD and DVD on January 1, 2019.
