When Cindy Williams initially turned the project down, Penny Marshall approached Gilda Radner to be Shirley Feeney. Gilda however, was under contract to SNL and didn't want to leave.

I always sort of wondered what Gilda's interpretation of Shirley would have been like, and if the behind the scenes drama would have been as intense as it was with Cindy Williams.
