The Tribeca Film Festival kicked off with a special screening of "Live From New York," a warts-and-all documentary that looks at the storied 40-year history of the late night comedy show "Saturday Night Live".The brainchild of producer Lorne Michaels, "Saturday Night Live" launched the careers of comedy stars ranging from Bill Murray and John Belushi to Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock and Martin Short.Garrett Morris, the show's first black cast member, said the show didn't quite know how to use him.
