    I love this Gilda's performance. This is actually how every rock or any other kind of music popular star would have performed that time. High and drunk. And they all are considered as super stars nowadays though. Dead stars, but still

        Elvi. Is that plural for more than one Elvis? Short, but funny.

              The actor impersonating Ricky Nelson wasn't very good.

                        Gilda did her own special and sang this same Joan Jett style bit.
                        , but it was much funnier. Look for that special that also stared Father Guido Sarduci. It is all great stuff.

                                      At 5:36 Bill Murray references Jerry Aldini who he also referenced in the movie Meatballs as the Camp Mohawk director.

                                        Gilda is more reminiscent of Iggy or Johnny Thunder than Patti Smith.

                                          True confessions... I was a wee lad when Gilda did her Candy Slice on SNL. Her parody of Patti Smith is what actually turned me on to Patti Smith! I eventually heard the Horses album which reminded me so much of Candy Slice. And then a little light bulb appeared over my pointed head... "Oh... wait a minute!" Sigh... I miss you Gilda.

                                                This is so great but I'd also like to see her first one, the one where she said Jane Curtin's hair was too shiny so someone cut some of it off. Does anybody know where that one can be seen?
