The Most Illuminating Gene Wilder Movies Are the Ones He Made Himself
Nathan Rabin

Thank you for that loving tribute to one of my favorite people.I have always thought of Young Frankenstein as the best comedy movie ever made.It still makes me laugh .Even the Marx Brothers and the Three Stooges don’t compare.Gene was Frankenstein to me.I love Willy Wonka,but that is a real character that has more Willy and less Gene .Gene owns Victor.When he married Gilda ,I thought that they would be the happiest couple ever.However,when Gilda got sick it made me angrier than Watergate did at the time.I know that Gene had a troubled life,but he was so funny ,and his Pure Imagination will forever be Putting On the Ritz.
