Gene Wilder (1933)

Wilder was just 8 years old when his ailing mother's doctor urged him to try making her laugh. The boy took those words to heart and developed a passion for performing that eventually led him to Hollywood. He is best known for his roles in comedy classics like Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory and Young Frankenstein. He cowrote the latter film with producer and director Mel Brooks, and their screenplay was nominated for an Academy Award. Which film sequel's script beat them out? More...

I loved Gene Wilder and the one fact missing from this article is that he died August 29, 2016. He was 83 years old and he died due to complications from Alzheimer's. He kept his illness from his fans because he couldn't bear for them to feel sad for him. I only met him once and he was an amazing person. I still love his movies and to me he will always be THE only Willy Wonka I can ever imagine. Pure comedic genius!

For crying out loud -- could someone PLEASE review these articles before posting them in the daily spotlight? So many are simply out-of-date.

"The thing I love about making movies is the peace of mind that I know I don't have to be perfect the first time. I can be perfect the second time or the third time."
