Of course we all loved him in “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” (as pictured above!) but my absolute favorite Gene Wilder memory is my earliest one: his appearance as The Fox in “The Little Prince.”
Click here to view a short scene from the film (1974, directed by Stanley Donen and based on the classic story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry).
Thank you, Mr. Wilder. Farewell.
