So many brilliant films. RIP Gene

Probably my favourite scene of his. :smile:


#10

Willy Wonka was a big part of my childhood but Young Frankenstein was a big part of my adolescence and introduction to Mel Brooks.

Also, he was in the criminally underrated Frisco Kid with a super young Harrison Ford.

To borrow a Wengerism, he was a top top actor.

Great actor. R.I.P. Frankenstein junior is just wonderful.

His shaking hand is rubbish Lol.

RIP though, funny dude.

RIP. Will live on through millions if not billions of Condescending Wonka memes. Legend.

This is really odd but I thought that Gene Wilder already was dead, for some unknown reason. Which made this news quite surprising.
