The acting world lost an indomitable figure yesterday with the passing of Gene Wilder. The actor—who'd given gusto to roles in such films as Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, and of course, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory—passed away at his home in Stamford, Connecticut, at the age of 83. His mastery of his abilities was evident in each movie he appeared in. He managed to portray an array of personalities in a way that convinced just about every audience, everywhere.
We respect Mr. Wilder for lending his talents for all to enjoy, and may he rest in peace as we honor his contributions to world of entertainment.
