GET THEE TO A SCREEN TO SEE THIS DOCUMENTARY FORTHWITH!

A heartfelt, honest look into a human who inspired countless women in comedy, and more than a few men as well, to shine their truth on life's foibles. You cheer for Gilda during this documentary, you relate to Gilda in this story of her life, and in the end, you're thankful for Gilda leaving this planet a better place than it was thanks to her having lived in it ... what a legacy. Cheers to you Ms. Radner, you comedic whirlwind of truth. Please do yourself a favor everyone and see this documentary!

A beautiful portrait of a complex, talented woman

With "Love, Gilda," Lisa D'Apolito creates an intimate portrait that doesn't sensationalize or romanticize her subject. I love how the film interweaves Gilda's letters, diary entries, archival footage of her childhood and career, and filmed interviews. It's really a love letter to Gilda!

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.
