⓱entertainment – Gene Wilder’s Iconic Willy Wonka Persona

It’s taken a few days for the finality of Gene Wilder’s passing to sink in. I first saw ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory‘ in my neighborhood theater during its original 1971 release. I’ve since watched it dozens of times and look forward to my next viewing. This scene is one of the primary reasons why it never gets dated…

Bonus: Wilder’s rant at the movie’s conclusion got a frenetic remix worth a view
