Alas, another great one has passed away.

Who can forget Wilder and Peter Doyle Puttin' On the Ritz? Or Willie Wonka?

Young Frankenstein - one of my favourites. Also loved "But I shoot with this hand" from Blazing Saddles. RIP Mr. Wilder.
Sorry...FrOnkenstein!

RIP Gene Wilder.
a wonderful comic. sad for his passing.
Enjoyed so many of his films - the work with Mel Brooks,
Young Frankenstein, Silver Streak, quite a few with
Richard Pryor and others.
The recent DVD release of the first season of original THE DEFENDERS (E.G.Marshall) has one episode with Wilder in a bit part, as
a waiter.

Thomas.

The Producers!! You now own fifty percent of the profits....

One marriage which turned sad, with the spouse dying and the two not getting along, Wilder wrote about it in his own memoirs.

Happily his final marriage seems to have been healing and happy.

A true genius. He did, however, take exception to being called a "comic" & said (paraphrased) he was an actor who happened to be good at comedy; He trained at The Old Vic & on Broadway.

Enjoyed a lot of his work, but Young Frankenstein is in my shortest list of beloved movies.

Liked him as an actor, fail to see where he fits into the folk music world?

Fail to see why you make facile comments anonymous guest.

The general heading ' folklore ' applies.

I liked him - probably Willy Wonka was my favorite role. He was cerebral and sarcastic, and I always wanted and hoped he'd find a great part. I don't think-aside from WW and Young Frankensteen-he ever did. I think people (me) often expect too much, though, and it was enough that he was brilliant in those roles (and presumably, in the ones other people liked).

For the record, "Folklore" does NOT apply, but "Unclassified" applies, somewhat less that "Obituary".

Can't remember which film I saw him in first...

But when I was 11 or 12, I saw "Start the revolution without me" at the local flea pit and was in hysterics..

Then again, when I was a kid, I thought Ken Dodd's Diddy Men were brilliant comedy...

"Start the revolution without me" seems to have disappeared without trace.. possibly for good reason.....??? 🙄

If I had both the time and the energy, I would seriously consider working up the appropriate staging of "Puttin' on the Ritz" for the FSGW Getaway concert. 8-)

39 years ago, when we were 18, our punk band used to do "Puttin' on the Ritz" at gigs... 😎

My favourite movie scene with Gene Wilder is from See No Evil, Hear No Evil. when Richard Pryor, the blind man, is driving and Gene Wilder, the deaf man, is directing him where to drive.

RIP Jerome Silberman.
