Gilda Radner's Screen Test
Before Lorne Michaels trotted out the Not Ready for Primetime Players in 1975 for Saturday Night Live's iconic debut, he did a series of screen tests with the original cast (Jane Curtin, Garrett Morris, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Laraine Newman) and two others who would later become strongly connected to SNL (Bill Murray and Andy Kaufman). These auditions have recently popped on YouTube so I thought it would be worthwhile to share my favorite with you. The one from Gilda Radner.
