Gene Wilder June 11, 1933 August 29, 2016 Goodbye Gene, you ll always be Willy Wonka to me.Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl first published in 1964 was an immediate children s classic and has inspired two film versions.I was surprised to see that neither of the films came close to Dahl s text Dahl s Willy Wonka is a dark creature who killed children, crushed their bones and baked them into the candy bars.Just kidding.This is of course a delightful children s young adult fantasy featuring the inimitable Willy Wonka The 1971 musical film directed by Mel Stuart and featuring Gene Wilder and Jack Albertson has long been a family favorite and I grew up loving the songs and Wilder s performance Interestingly, according to IMDB so you know its true Peter Ostrum, the child actor who portrayed Charlie Bucket, only ever appeared in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, it was his only film credit He is now a veterinarian.Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Tim Burton s 2005 adaptation starring Johnny Depp and Christopher Lee was also very entertaining and I have enjoyed watching it as well So it was no surprise that I finally got around to reading Dahl s original novel I was curious to see which film version came closest to Dahl s vision, and I can surprisin
Dark humour, sinister undertones, and playful whimsy blend together to create a classic children s literature that is lusciously sweet and delightfully disturbing Mr Willy Wonka is the most amazing, the most fantastic, the most extraordinary chocolate maker the world has ever seen Come now, dear readers Behave and pull yourselves together This is not the time for dillydallying Willy Wonka is about to welcome five lucky kids into his mysterious factory The caveat Only five of these Golden Tickets had been printed and one of these tickets is hidden underneath a chocolate bar wrapped in ordinary paper The five chocolate bars could be anywhere around the world, over the counter, in any street, in any place where Wonka s confectioneries are sold Five winners, accompanied by their parents or guardians, will have their once in a lifetime chance to take a tour of the wonderful Wonka Factory So, get ready to unwrap those Wonka s Chocolate Nutty Crunch Surprise and Whipple Scrumptious Fudge mallow Delight If you fancy an Augustus flavoured chocolate covered
Slightly odd story of virtuous poverty rewarded by the evil capitalist who caused the poverty by firing all his workers in favour of employing non human immigrants.Unemployment from the chocolate factory, apparently the only consumer of labour in the otherwise stagnant economy of Charlie s home town, proving I suppose that an excess of chocolate is really bad for you both economically and physically requires that all of his grandparents have to live and sleep in one bed while the family slowly starves Evidently the social contract is relentlessly one sided in Charlie s country.Willy Wonka, the owner of the chocolate factory, a man who makes Charles Montgomery Burns look reasonable, holds a competition to allow a small number of children into his factory to select one of them to be his successor.Charlie wins one of the tickets The hard school of his poverty having made him virtuous, he manages to survive all the other children whose gross moral turpitudes cause them to be
I was planning on writing an extremely argumentative review explaining how sadistically vile Willie Wonka is, and how his god like complex ruined the lives of four flawed children But that seems insensitive at the moment Instead I shall simply say that Gene Wilder dominated his performance as Willie Wonka He carried all the outward charm, the charisma an
Everything in this room is edible Even I m edible But, that would be called canibalism It is looked down upon in most societies Everyone knows this story Little Charlie Bucket lives with his parents and both sets of grandparents They all depend on his father for money and he just lost his job They re running out of food, fuel and money when just in time Charlie find a golden ticket This golden ticket allows him and two guardians into Willy Wonka s Chocolate Factory for a tour Charlie and Grandpa Joe set off into the wild unknowns Aside anyone else annoyed that bedridden Gpa Joe can walk once there s chocolate involved I m calling foul The muscular atrophy alone Charlie is joined by four spoiled brats who are slowly offed along the journey and their terrible parents only some of which are offed during the adventure.Most macabre ly, the Oompa Loompas sing a song at the demist of each child For example, gum chewer extraordinaire Violet Beauregarde tries a test gum despite Willy Wonka s discouragements and is subsequently turned into a blueberry Her Oompa Loompa song include a set of stanzas regarding how one gum chewing woman starting chewing in her sleep, accidentally chewed her tongue off and lives in an asylum it gets pretty dark, pretty fast I really wonder what Dahl had against gumMy
One of the first books I ever read I wanted to watch the movie, but wasn t allowed to until I read the book And so I did And now, every few years, I want to again It s been a long time But who doesn t love chocolate and dreams and wishes and gifts I think I may read this series
