Bill Murray and Gilda Radner
Raquel Welch and Gilda Radner (playing Emily Litella). SNL 1976
Gilda’s Club, named in honor of comedic genius, Gilda Radner of Saturday Night Live and movie fame. The Seattle chapter is located at 1400 Broadway, Seattle, WA 98122. I love this old building, built in 1911 and drive by it often.
It’s a wonderful place and resource for families learning to live with cancer. Gilda’s Club builds social support structures with members at no cost to the family, individual or friends… All are welcome!
The Best of Gilda Radner
There was a profound sadness inside Gilda. At the same time there was this boundless joy and energy. She fluctuated…They existed side by side. And sometimes she’d just disappear. She would just go away, and maybe that’s when she was sad…If I ever had a problem, I could talk to her. She was totally accessible and one of the wisest women I ever met. She had an understanding of human nature that most people don’t have. That cute Gilda on TV is not the Gilda I saw - although she was incredibly cute in real life. She had that quality, but she was also incredibly bright.
