My 5 Favorite Gene Wilder Movies

I have a confession to make, I never really liked Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Gene Wilder was a brilliant comedian and he made the part as funny as possible, but I thought Willy Wonka was an obnoxious jerk. So, since the Friday Frivolity crew decided to have a Gene Wilder theme, I thought I’d share my five favorite Gene Wilder movies that I thought were so much better than his most popular role.

The Little Prince

To me, Gene Wilder will always be the fox.

Blazing Saddles

I had to sift through quite a few clips to find one that was family friendly enough for the blog. If coarse language offends you, you want to avoid this film.

 

The World’s Greatest Lover

Sometimes he didn’t even have to say a word to be hysterical.

The Producers

The remake was good, but Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder are The Producers.

 

Young Frankenstein

And I will end with my favorite Gene Wilder movie moment.

Five Funny Gene Wilder movies, and no Willy Wonka isn't one of them.
