Little Old Lady in Saturday Night Live 1977
Character Is A Prostitute
Guest hosting “Saturday Night Live” in 1977, Ruth played an elderly streetwalker. It was spoofing the dramatic TV movie “Little Ladies of the Night.” It was a film that explored teenage prostitution and generated record high ratings when it aired in 1977. SNL decided to do their take of the movie in a sketch entitled “Little Old Ladies of the Night.” Unfortunately, no clips of this sketch are available online as “Saturday Night Live” is very strict about protecting its copyright.
