Default Gene Wilder

Passed today at age 83, Willie Wonka is gone but lives forever. Sad day but he's with his true love Gilda Radnor who passed early of cancer.. Heaven is gonna be laughing their butts off with the two of them together..

Awww, I loved watching his movies! The one where he was the devout Jewish fellow, paired with ???, running from ???? - one of the funniest movies I've ever watched.
--------
"The Frisco Kid". which also has Harrison Ford. Wilder's best movie ever, IMHO!! lol
--------
(and I don't even like Harrison Ford!)
