Love Gilda: the Eternal Spirit of Gilda Radner (2018, 90 minutes) lets us reconnect with the beloved comedian. The film beautifully weaves together recently discovered audiotapes of Radner, interviews with her friends, rare home movies and diaries read by comedians—Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudoph and Cecily Strong—who derive inspiration from Gilda. Produced and Directed by Lisa D'Apolito. Post-screening Q&A with Lisa D'Apolito and Dan Friedman (The Forward) will follow.

AJHS is home to records on prominent Jewish women actors and comedians, including the Molly Picon Papers, the Adah Isaac Menken Papers, Papers of Sara Adler, photos and records on Sophie Tucker, and more.
