Shouts From the Back Row – Episode 264 – R.I.P. Gene Wilder

genewilder2

It is with a heavy heart that we bid farewell to another beloved actor, as Gene Wilder has passed away at the age of 83. Wilder was a bit of an enigma, having mostly withdrawn from acting in the late 90’s, but although his filmography is short, he gave life to two of the most iconic cinematic roles of all time: Willy Wonka and Dr. Frankenstein (the one from Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein). Clearly Wilder was a man of quality over quantity, and so on this podcast Gill, Robin, and TK go through Wilder’s career, discuss their favourite Gene Wilder movies, and confess that there are a lot of his films that they still need to watch.
