Love, Gilda opens a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of beloved performer Gilda Radner, whose greatest role was sharing her story. Working with the Radner estate, D’Apolito unearthed a collection of diaries and personal audio and videotapes documenting her childhood, her comedy career, her relationships and ultimately, her struggles with cancer. These never-before-seen-or-heard footage and journal entries form the narrative spine of the documentary, allowing Gilda to tell her own story – through laughter and sometimes tears. With interviews from her friends (Chevy Chase, Lorne Michaels, Laraine Newman, Paul Shaffer, and Martin Short), and diaries read by modern-day comedians inspired by Gilda (Bill Hader, Melissa McCarthy, 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.
