Editorial Reviews

Gilda Radner, one of SNL’s original cast members is considered to be one of the most gifted comediennes of all time. Radner’s sweet and loveable appeal quickly turned her into one of America’s favorite women. See all of her fantastic performances as some of the funniest characters ever seen on television, including Emily Litella, Roseanne Roseannadanna, Candy Slice, Baba Wawa and the nerdy Lisa Loopner. In addition, there’s extra bonus material, including exclusive interviews from SNL’s original cast and writers and classic never before seen footage.

I've watched a few other SNL "Best of" compilations over the years and this is by far the best. It is presented on a single-sided double-layer disc and features many classic Gilda skits, as well as great extras, making it well worth the long wait. The quality is pretty good, considering the source material is between 25 and 30 years old. The TV interviews and the "Inside Look" featurette also show excerpts from other skits not presented on this DVD, making one hope there will eventually be a volume 2.

The total running time of the main feature is 1 hour 32 mins. and include the following:
-Disclaimer: Cousteau
-Audience Questions
-Nerd Prom
-Jewess Jeans
-Not For Ladies Only
-Emily Litella: Violins
-Dancing In The Dark
-Brownie
-Celebrity Weightlifting
-Roseanne: Health Clubs
-Extremely Stupid (my favorite)
-Candy Slice
-Autumn Fizz
-Lucy A-Bomb
-Olga Korbut
-Nerds & Milt
-Stretch Marks
-Emily Litella: Bitch
-Soup Commercial
-Rhonda Weis
-Roseanne: Bo Derek
-La Dolce Gilda
-Slumber Party
-Hey You
-Laundromat

The extras include:
-her original screen test for SNL (3:26)
-a photo gallery
-a Rolling Stone article by Roy Blount Jr. from November 2, 1978
-a TV interview with Tom Snyder on "The Tomorrow Show" (18:27)
-a TV interview with Jane Pauley from "The Today Show" (6:14)
-fellow SNL cast & crew remember Gilda on "An Inside Look" (19:07)

There you have it, a great DVD tribute to Gilda Radner at a very affordable price. Buy it today!

I've watched the 'Gilda Best Of VHS for nearly 15 years.

This DVD just begins to fill in many of the gaps that the VHS left out.

If you love Gilda --this DVD is a must--but SNL better have a Volume 2 ready to go soon!--There are many LOVED sketches and performances missing!!!!!!!!

Format: DVD
Out of all the stars from "Saturday Night Live", perhaps the one whose star shined brightest was Gilda Radner. Often regarded as the greatest cast member the show ever had, Gilda proved to be the standout of the cast from the first five years. Her wide range of zany charatcers and a pension for pyschical comedy not seen in any comedienne since Lucille Ball made her one of the most beloved female comics ever. Ever since Broadway Video started releasing best - of dvd's for "SNL" cast members for the show's 25th anniversary, many longtime fans begged for a "Best Of Gilda Rdaner" dvd to be relased. On Seotember 6th, 2005, those fans finally got their wish. How is it? Read on.

Well, to be honest, I was a little disappointed in this dvd. It's no secret that Gilda did some of the most hilarious sketches in "SNL" history, most of the time portraying her own original characters. However, I felt this dvd doesn't do her justice. It is apparent that the compilers aimed this dvd at younger "SNL" fans as a sampler of some of Gilda's best work, so a newer generation might embrace her legacy. Great idea, but I honestly think that they should have also kept the hardcore fans who've longed for her best stuff in mind as well when this dvd was made.

To get diehards to buy it, the compilers put most of Gilda's most famous popular recurring characters on the dvd, such as Emily Litella, Roseanne Rosanndanna, Baba Wawa and Lisa Loopner. However, for the most part, I wouldn't say they picked the best editions of these sketches for the dvd. They are all indeed very funny, but I can't help but feeling that they're better appearances of these characters. Other sketches, such as "Slumber Party" and "Candy Slice", do indeed have many amusing moments, but sooner or later the viewer loses interest.

Thee will never be another Gilda Radner & how fortunate we are to have some of her funniest moments captured on DVD. I'd be hard pressed to name my favorite sketch, but the one with her as Baba Wawa interviewing "Marweena Detrick," played hysterically by Madeline Kahn (yet another comic genius who left this life too early) brings tears of laughter to my eyes.

This is by far the best of the "Best Of" compliations for SNL because Gilda is truly a comic genius and by far one of the most talented, if not THE most talented of any of the SNL players. I had the VHS version that was released in the late 80's/early 90's and it was spectacular. I had since lost the tape and have been waiting for the DVD to come out. I really enjoyed the DVD and the special features that came with it. There are some slight differences between the older VHS release and the new DVD release.

There are some skits involving "Emily Litella" and "Rosanne Rosannadanna" that are different. The performance of "Gimme Mick" by "Candie Slice" is much better on the older VHS release, however the DVD version shows more of her character and why she is the way she is and it's quite funny. Overall, I am very pleased with the DVD and am happy it is released. The only thing missing was the classic "Harley's Bristol Cream" commercial.

Now as soon as they come out with the Best of Cheri Oteri, I will be even happier.
