Death of SNL star Gilda Radner...

Item # 691343

May 21, 1989

LOS ANGELES TIMES, May 21, 1989 

* Gilda Radner death (1st report)
* American actress - comedian
* "Saturday Night Live" fame
* Best title to be had ?

The bottom of the front page has a photo and brief report announcing the death of Gilda Radner, one of the original cast members of "Saturday Night Live". A lengthier article headed: "Saturday Night Live Star Gilda Radner Dies at 42", with a photo of her, carrying over to page 41.
Radner died from ovarian cancer, and her life and legacy from SNL established her as an iconic figure in the history of American comedy.
Great to have this report in a newspaper from the capital of the entertainment industry, and from the city where she died.
The complete first section with pages 1-42, very nice condition.
