Remembering Gene Wilder

The sad news came through on Monday that actor, Gene Wilder, passed away at the age of 83. I don't think anyone would dispute that Wilder can be considered one of the great comedic film actors of the 20th century. One might even make that declaration simply on the basis of his role in the Mel Brooks film, Young Frankenstein [DVD YOU].



Other Gene Wilder films in our collection include Silver Streak [DVD SIL], Blazing Saddles [DVD BLA], The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Younger Brother [DVD ADV], and the kids' classic, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory [J DVD WIL].

Here's Wilder from a PBS interview back in 2007:
