Trivia

This was filmed at the same time as "The Blues Brothers", which created a conflict for Paul Shaffer. At the urging of Lorne Michaels, Shaffer chose to work on "Gilda: Live". His part in "The Blues Brothers" was given to Murphy Dunne and John Belushi is said to have remarked "Paul Shaffer is not a Blues Brother". See more »

Huge delight!
17 May 1999 | by buffy-34See all my reviews

I tremendously enjoyed Gilda Live. A lot of her most loved characters from SNL in a broadway show, what more could you want? You get to watch this amazingly talented actress do what she did best: making people laugh.
