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".

It's no more complicated than this: of all the comediennes that came from the early days of "Saturday Night Live", Gilda Radner was the funniest.
"Gilda Live" shows her doing what she does best. Not only is there a sketch featuring our old friend Emily Litella telling an interesting children's story but also a menagerie of other characters in routines that are funny, touching and somehow heartbreaking.
The biggest scene has to be Gilda singing the song "Let's Talk Dirty to the Animals". Just watch it "Gilda Live"; you'll see why.
Nine stars. Big laughs for the little lady.
