I had hoped this was a hoax but it appears to be the real deal. He starred in a lot of favorite movies of mine , including the ones with Richard Pryor, Blazing Saddles and most of all the classic Young Frankenstein.

That's a bummer. Gonna have to bust out my "Young Frankenstein" DVD sometime soon.

I was just reading the Yahoo article on his passing.  I didn't realize that "Young Frankenstein" was mostly his project; I always thought Mel Brooks wrote it but apparently it was originally Gene's idea and then he and Mel rewrote Gene's original script.

I didn't think he was as old as he was. I watched Stir Crazy a few weeks back. Great film. RIP, funny man.

I can't tell you how many times I saw "Silver Streak" on HBO as a young lad in the very early 80's. It seemed like it was on every day, and if it was, I couldn't pull myself away from watching it. I love these scenes.

Blazing Saddles & Stir Crazy were two of my absolute favorites growing up, still are R.I.P.

Blazing Saddles - what an incredible film!

Thank you, Gene! You were a wonderful entertainer.

83 is not too bad. I wish I go that far. He lived a full life.

I know Wilder was a comedian...Richard Pryor....etc...
His cool way of speaking...and delivery...his eyes - lol !
He would of matched up very well with George Carlin, as I think of it.
But ultimately, " Willie Wonka " has my heart. He nailed it. ( no pun attended )

i saw this news right when it broke and it upset me. i love blazing saddles, and willy wonka and the chocolate factory was a staple of my childhood.  

this scene in Woody Allen's Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex, But Were Afraid to Ask always kills me.

He's been in soooo many of my favorite movies! Anything with Mel Brooks is just comedy gold. The stuff with Richard Pryor was classic. And Johnny Depp wasn't fit to hold Mr. Wonka's Snozzberries.

Thanks for all the laughs, sir. Godspeed.
