What a great shame. Wilder absolutely commanded the screen whenever he was on it.

Damn...sad news

Loved him in The Producers, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Stir Crazy and Rhinoceros

Very sad.

See no evil, hear no evil and stir crazy are 2 of his funniest movies. The mens rea scene and the bit where the lady cop is trying to take their mugshots is hilarious.

Yeah i really liked Stir Crazy, Silver Streak was pretty funny as well, shame because he seemed like the kind of guy who was nice in real life too.

Blazing Saddles was OK IMO, though a little bit confusing especially at the end.. much prefer his other films but he definitely was funny and likable.

Wasnt Silver Streak where Richard Pryor was trying to teach Gene Wilder to act black, man that had me rolling around on the floor in tears. Sure it was that movie right?

R.I.P Mr Wilder, you will be truly missed, Legend.
