giggles with gilda

art/history: sometimes, you simply can't improve upon the original. the first cast of snl had such legendary alchemy that no subsequent iterations quite equalled their comedic heft - & gilda! o, gilda burned bright. so creative & prolific were her contributions that it sometimes seemed as though she balanced the weight of the programme upon her tiny shoulders. iconic creations such as roseanne roseannadanna, judy miller & emily litella are still riotously fresh & she threw every sinew into her impersonations of lucille ball & patti smith...but, above all, they were infused with genuine affection. following a badly ended relationship with bill murray, she finally found bliss with willy wonka. it wouldn't last. gilda radner (born #otd in 1946) died of ovarian cancer five years after she & gene wilder married. she can still make me giggle, though.
