Gilda Radner puts a smile on the faces of people who remember watching her as one of the original cast members of “Saturday Night Live,” where she created and portrayed such now-classic comic characters as Roseanne Roseannadanna, Emily Litella and Lisa Loopner. Exuberant and open, channeling her inner child, she rose to meteoric fame in television, movies and on Broadway, and was declared “one of America’s sweethearts,” eventually finding happiness with Gene Wilder. In her own words the comedian reflects on her childhood, her comedy career, her relationships and ultimately, her struggle with cancer. Weaving together her recently discovered audiotapes, revealing interviews with friends (Chevy Chase, Lorne Michaels, Laraine Newman, Paul Shaffer and Martin Short), rare home movies and diaries read by modern-day comedians inspired by Gilda (Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and Cecily Strong), Love, Gilda opens up a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story.
