My Top Five Gene Wilder Movies
I was so sad to hear of the passing of a great comedy and acting legend as I saw yesterday that Gene Wilder passed away at the age of 83. Gene Wilder was in some of my favorite movies of all time.
I remember fondly the first movie I ever saw that Gene Wilder was in. I was 10 years old and my dad took me to the New Moon Drive-In here in Lake Charles to see his movie "Stir Crazy" with comedy genius Richard Pryor.
Yes, Lake Charles actually had a drive in movie theater. It was located where the New Moon golf driving range is at now located on Highway 14.
So I got to thinking and wanted to share with you my top 5 favorite Gene Wilder movies:
5. Woman In Red -- 1984
4. Young Frankenstein -- 1974
3. Blazzing Saddles
2. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory -- 1971
1. Stir Crazy -- 1980
Rest in Peace Gene Wilder. Thanks for the laughs and great memories!
