Same here Mark, decades of laughs to look back on, three of my favourites, The producers, Blazing Saddles and young Frankenstein,
among many others.

Woman In Red, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory for me Tom.

Different lives, different lifestyles,...simple as that! [Frown]

Same sense of sadness.

I'll put something on today in tribute - either Blazing Saddles on Blu ray or my full length print of Silver Streak on Super 8 - he'll be missed - a very private man but very funny on screen.

So sad. Gene Wilder leaves us with so many memories that, thankfully, we can re-live thanks to film. So many great roles but he will always be Willy Wonka to me. RIP Gene.

I have "Woman in Red" (optical sound feature)!

My favorite, however, is "Young Frankenstein"!

He had this neat "under stated" way of acting, almost like Gary Cooper, where he wouldn't look like he was acting, but when you saw it on screen, boy, we he acting!

Having seen a lot of those bloopers and deleted scenes from the Mel Brooks films, It's amazing that Gene and cast could actually make it through those films intact, they are hilarious! you could make a whole "alternate" version of some of those Mel Brooks films, just with the outtakes and I bet it would as funny or nearly as funny.

You've got to praise anyone who has given so much laughter to so many for so long!

Rest in Peace ... Dr. Frankenstein! [Smile]

What is your "Woman In Red" like for colour Osi?

It's a film I'd still quite like to find one day if the colour is holding up well for this title.

I always remember him in "Silver Streak" with Richard Pryor.

No one mentions Haunted Honeymoon. I thought that was a really funny film with some terrific support actor performances.

The color is very good, maybe the very slightest shift, but I'm not sure if that is even true. I'll take it out and look at it again.

... and hey, the woman's dress is a brilliant red!

Thanks Osi, and as for the dress, I don't think we ever need worry about that one, no matter how much the print turns!

The first movie I saw Gene Wilder in was Bonnie and Clyde. Even in a small role you knew he was something special.
