Bidding Gene Wilder a fond farewell

I will miss Gene Wilder, but I have not really thought of him for many years.

I really liked him in “Blazing Saddles,” “Young Frankenstein” and “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”

The 1967 version of “The Producers,” his collaboration up with Harrison Ford in 1979’s “The Frisco Kid” as well as the four movies with friend and colleague Richard Pryor were ok.

“Hanky Panky,” in 1982, with wife Gilda Radner is my favorite of the three films they made together.

What follows is a list of some of Wilder’s best known films.
