    Also a good pairing in "See No Evil, Hear No Evil"... especially the scene where Pryor (as "Wally", the blind character) was driving a car, & Wilder (as "Dave", the deaf character) was giving instructions.

    Will be sadly missed, but fondly remembered.

    Shame. Didn't realise he was 83. Only thing I have seen him in is Willy Wonka, but feel awfully sad to hear this. A childhood classic.

    A comedy genius.

    RIP Gene

    There's a spelling mistake you haven't corrected in the opening sentence of the post.

    He had a long and interesting life, fell in love (at least twice), and will be remembered fondly by countless people. I guess you can't really ask for more out of life.

    FantasyDeals' skills at copy'n'pasting seemed to be lacking originally, but perhaps "Williy" was the intended spelling this time.


    Was watching Stir Crazy the other day, I never get tired of watching him and Richard Pryor together .

    Apart from the movies already mentioned, please aim for those he acted in as well as writing the screenplay &/or took Directing duties upon:

    "Haunted Honeymoon", "The Woman in Red", "The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother", "The World's Greatest Lover", & the "Skippy" segment of "Sunday Lovers" being those that fit all the criteria.

    However, you cannot dismiss "Young Frankenstein" (as Wilder had the original idea, & co-wrote the screenplay with the Director, Mel Brooks).

    "The Producers" is also a pivot point in his acting career.

    Stir crazy is one of the best comedies ever made :-D

    He has that golden ticket to heaven above, may he RIP

    It got so that every pissant prairie punk who thought he could shoot a gun would ride into town to try out the Waco Kid. I must've killed more men than Cecil B. DeMille. Got pretty gritty. Started hearing the word "draw" in my sleep. Then one day, I was walking down the street when I heard someone shout, "Reach for it, mister!" I turned around to see who it was, and there I was, standing face-to-face...with a 6 year-old kid. I just put my guns down and walked away. Little ******* shot me in the ass!

    RIP Gene Wilder

    Just watched, what he says about swearing for swearing sake in films is very true, and Sausage Party I scanned over as my kids wanted to watch it, and well i've never seen a film thats more swearing for swearing sake, its an absolutely horrendous film, Seth Rogen wasnt my fav actor but i found him amusing, he has gone to the bottom of the pile IMO now.

    There is very little films made today that are funny without being full of shock value.

    R.I.P

    RIP loved his films, and i hope many generations will feel the same

    He was an amazing actor, a really sensitive, sweet guy, with the most expressive, soulful eyes. Might watch Blazing Saddles for the zillionth time

    :(......

    Still makes me laugh ,one of the best https://media3.giphy.com/media/zPv2fu0XPkJl6/200_s.gif

    for me blazing saddles was the greatest comedy of all time, just ahead of see no evil hear no evil, and he played a huge part in both. we could argue over what's the best comedy of all time, and the likelihood was, that gentleman was in it lol. sorely missed and can't be replaced, r.i.p
