My daughter saw him on the TV when they were advising of his passing, "Yay, Willy Wonka's on TV" she said, without reading the subtitles. I haven't told her yet, I think it would break her heart as it's her favourite movie of all time.

Fantastic actor/comedian seen and laughed at lots of his films over the years so
let's be Frank when you were Young you were a little Stir Crazy and
Blazed from your Saddle like Bonnie & Clyde. You were The Little
Prince The World's Greatest Lover who liked a bit of Hanky Panky
or to just be Sunday Lovers with The Women in Red.
You didn't want to Start The Revolution or have a Haunted Honeymoon
you just wanted to take your Quackser's Fortune and live happily ever after
in a world of pure imagination as Willy Wonka would have in his Chocolate Factory.
RIP Gene Wilder thank's for the memories.
