"Young Frankenstein" (that's Frahnkensteen') has got to be the funniest movie I've ever watched.

So many great movies and great memories. A happy memory from one of his movies to remember him.

In springtime, the only pretty ring time, When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding; Sweet lovers love the spring (from Willy Wonka)

I grew up watching his old movies as if they were new releases. I did not realize he was 83. RIP

He was great in the Mel Brook's movies and also paired with his friend Richard Pryor. RIP

What did you expect? "Welcome, sonny"? "Make yourself at home"? "Marry my daughter"? You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons.

The Frisco Kid

He was one of the most likable actors. He felt like a friend.

Oh, man. Sad. I loved this guy. Made me laugh, made me cry. Beautiful person.

Jim Carrey said it best:

Gene Wilder was one of the funniest and sweetest energies ever to take a human form. If there's a heaven he has a Golden Ticket. ;^)

Great actor. RIP. Loved him in a number of movies besides Wonka. Sounds like he died surrounded by those he loved, but Alzheimer's's is so cruel.
