Also on hand are Late Night with David Letterman's Paul Shaffer, playing straight man and playing up a musical storm, and Father Guido Sarducci, ever the irreverent reverend. Join them as the late, great Gilda does what she does best - be flat-out funny.

The first cast of SNL was also, in many ways, the first generation to have grown up on TV. Like the kids who grew up with computers, they instinctively understood that TV was its own medium, with its own rules and traditions; it wasn't a movie screen in your living room any more than a computer is a TV that you type on.
And so, they understood what limits to push and what resonated with the generation they shared a time-space with. Gilda was the most sensitive of the bunch...she knew us: she shared our secrets; she knew our deepest fears and our finest hopes. If you can listen to "Honey, Touch Me (with My Clothes On)" without weeping for a lost time gone by, you're either a cold fish or from a different era.
In this era of anything goes, "Let's Talk Dirty to the Animals" is still hilarious and happily shocking. I could go on, but Gilda's passing represented a loss to our comic heritage that rivals (and even surpasses) that of any comic genius, from Belushi to Bruce. (I have no idea about the technical quality of Amazon's DVD-R. The content, however, is beautiful. You won't find a better way to spend an evening than watching the finest performer from the 70's.)
