Gene Wilder (1933–2016)


In memory of Gene Wilder (born Jerome Silberman June 11, 1933; Milwaukee, Wisconsin) here is a video clip from Young Frankenstein (1974) in one of the funniest parts of the movie. Wilder wanted to make people laugh, and that he did. Wilder was married to the late great Gilda Radner (1984-89), who passed away from ovarian cancer (aged 42) in 1989. After her death, Wilder raised awareness of ovarian cancer, promoting early detection and treatment. Wilder passed away on August 29th; he was 83.
