Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory ★★★★★

R.I.P Gene Wilder

I felt like I lost someone from my childhood when I heard the news of his passing. I don't usually write anything on letterboxed when a celebrity dies but Gene Wilder was just such a great, wonderful screen presence and overall human being that I thought I'd pay my respects. Gene has several movies that I consider one of the bests(The Producers,Young Frankenstein,Blazing Saddles) But Willy Wonka is the first film that really introduced me to him and will always be the definitive Gene Wilder film for me.

Respect to such a legendary actor.
