Editorial Reviews

In 1979, Gilda Radner threw a summerlong party at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre. Everybody came: Lisa Loopner, Judy Miller, Emily Litella, Rhonda and the Rhondettes, Candy Slice, Roseanne Roseannadanna. And many thousands of cheering theatergoers celebrating
Gilda's hilarious, knockout Brodway debut. Filmed by another award-winning stage/screen comedy legend, director Mike Nichols, Gilda Live showcases the comedienne's Saturday Night Live alter-egos in edgy, crazy material not even the Not Ready for Prime Time Players were ready for. 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.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

If you want to understand how seminal and ground-breaking the original SNL cast was, you have to look at the best of the individual players. They were all funny, but Gilda Radner was hilarious, touching, heart-breaking and brilliant. There will never be another like her.

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.)

The sellers on amazon are charging double the price if not more for this great film. Go to [...] and get it for 19.99 and they ship it UPS for free!! Its made on demand and may not play on some players esp. the ones with recorders built in but it plays fine on "play only" devices. Its in widescreen and the picture looks as bright and clean as it did back when it showed in the theaters in 1980. Still just as funny as it was back then!! Gilda radner was a truly talented woman whose life was cut way short when she died of cancer and her smile and humor live on in this film!!

I taped this when it was on SNL. Then I bought the VHS when it came out. Now I got the DVD so I can keep having keepsakes of the laughs of all the skits. Definitely a monument to her memory and her wild and witty humor. Gets you up when you are down.

She may be gone, but she's definitely not forgotten. I have always loved the talented work of Gilda Radner, and now I can finally enjoy her again. Endearing, inspiring, and most certainly, FUNNY!... Gilda will always be my favorite comedienne...and if you watch this DVD, she will be yours too. One of the original cast member's of Saturday Night Live's "Not ready for prime time players" Gilda had set the bar pretty high, and has been one tough act to follow. -Elizabeth M., Staten Island, NY

I love this video! There is no one like Gilda. The bit by Fr. Guido Sarducci explaining heaven is worth the price of the video. I used several of the pieces for presentations and projects in my senior year and for graduate work. Got an A each time!

Gilda Radner was my favorite Not Ready for Prime Time Player and this DVD of her Broadway event gathers some of her best characters in one place - it's a wonderful way to remember her. Whether you're watching her audition with the hilariously ironic I Love to Be Unhappy or watching her Talk Dirty to the Animals, she's always pitch perfect. And you'll get big laughs from Roseanne Roseannadanna, Emily Litella and Judy Miller. It's hard to live in a world without Gilda, so thank goodness this show was taped!

I recently thought of this movie when they had a show on TV about the first 5 years of SNL, and was so pleased to find it on DVD. I had run through a number of copies on VHS, as I can watch this movie over and over again. That Don Novello as Father Quido Sarducci is in this movie is icing on the cake!
