RIP Gene

Cinema has lost another great. Gene Wilder has gone to that giant candy store in the sky and he will absolutely be missed. Many people know him from his iconic role as Willy Wonka in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory but I remember him from Blazing Saddles as that’s my dad’s favorite movie and was my first introduction to Wilder. His antics and comedy have been with me ever since and movies like Silver StreakStir Crazy and Young Frankenstein only solidified my love of the man.

See you on the other side.

He’s now reunited with Gilda Radner and I’d like to think that they’re together somewhere, making each other laugh until they cry.
