1971 In Review - June
The last of five coveted "golden tickets" falls into the hands of a sweet but very poor boy. He and his grandpa then get a tour of the strangest chocolate factory in the world. The owner leads five young winners on a thrilling and often dangerous tour of his factory.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a timeless children’s classic that still endures to this day mainly because of the sense of wonder that permeates throughout the film and also because of the performance of Gene Wilder, who has never been better in an iconic performance as Willy Wonka.
Based on the book by Roald Dahl, confectionery genius Willy Wonka offers a once in a lifetime, whimsical tour of his famous chocolate factory to 5 lucky golden ticket winners.
The factory, is almost a character in itself, thats full of fascinating gadgetry and vivid colours. The musical numbers too are incredibly fun, featuring such memorable songs as "The Candy Man," "Oompa Loompa," and "Pure Imagination."
A tasty treat, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a fantastical adventure that taps into the inner child of us all.
