Gene Wilder- Immortal Movie Moments

Gene Wilder will live forever in:

  • The Arthur Penn directed Bonnie and Clyde (1967) as Eugene Grizzard, the nice guy on a date hijacked and temporarily befriended by the dangerous Barrow gang.
  • The Mel Brooks masterpiece The Producers (1967) as Leo Bloom the shy accountant persuaded by shady Max Bialystock (the great Zero Mostel) to enter into a creative Broadway con game during a Central Park rowboat rental and lunch at a hot dog stand- “I’ll do it.”
  • The Arthur Hiller directed Silver Streak (1976) on a dangerous, as well as funny long distant train ride with Jill Clayburgh and Richard Pryor, whom Gene had a special chemistry with. “Next time we will take a plane.”

And in many other movies we will always remember Gene fondly!

  1. Gene Wilder let his soul show in all his marvelous roles. Therefore the viewer could relate to that exposure, from a little to a great deal, based on how it mirrored his own personality.
