A pretty fair documentary with a compelling subject
I wanted to see and know more of the strange little girl and the young television sensation than this film shows. It did much better when it got it got to the mature woman, finding the love of her life, but instead of children and growing old together, it was him caring for her in sickness and early death. I'm sure there are many others like me who have not thought of Gilda in a long time because her end was so sad. I needed this reminder of what she gave us.
Gilda's story and that of Fran Dresher have many similarities. Both were the most benign of people, wanting only to bring cheer to others. Both were subjected to so much senseless suffering and loss from illnesses science has not yet conquered as to prove that there is no benevolent God in control.
