Gilda Radner is one of the great comics/actors of our era. Though she passed away from cancer in 1989, her legacy, especially when opening the doors to future generations of female performers will live on forever.
The new documentary Love, Gilda, tells the story of the Ms. Radner in her own words. Using audio tapes, diaries, handwritten letters, interviews, archival footage and home movies, the documentary is a love letter to a woman who will never be forgotten.
I adored this movie. I’ve been a fan of Gilda since I discovered her in the late 90’s. What I loved about this movie is that the movie told the story of her entire life, not just the years she spent on Saturday Night Live. Like any of us, she had flaws and insecurities, but was still able to live a full life, especially when cancer took over her body.
I recommend it.
Love, Gilda is presently in theaters.
