Gene Wilder

He found the manic in humanity. And we’re forever grateful. Few actors have ever generated such a mix of admiration and affection as Gene Wilder. Rest in peace, old friend.

  2. Wonderful! Funny, I was just penning a brief ode to Gene as my upcoming weekly post when I paused to check my email- your post came up. I saw Blazing Saddles in theatres as a kid, I never looked back. Great tribute!

  3. Very eloquently stated. If you find the time, I shared my thoughts on the subject as well. I hope it isn’t inappropriate to share a direct link like this.

    Always loved Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ Smarter Brother. Rematched it obsessively as a kid, even bought reels of Super 8 to view it on a “big” screen. Obviously not one of his classcis, but think I’ll watch it again tonight to remind myself what cheerful optimism really is. That’s what that blue-eyed boy really represented.

  11. I listened to an interview with him today conducted with NPR about 5 years ago.
    What a compassionate and caring person….loved how he shared his getting to know and work with Eddie Murphy.

  13. I haven’t watched any of Gene’s movies in a long time but Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles were two of my favorites. He was so funny and will be missed.

    “Blazing Saddles”. I laughed my head off. I can’t help but think that Gene and Gilda are rockin’ in Heaven and making everyone laugh.
