    One of my favorite actors, very sad. After seeing him in "The Producers" I heard the comment that he was the master of controlled hysteria. RIP Gene...

    RIP. My favorites of his besides Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles and Willy Wonka were when he starred with Richard Pryor.

    Dr. FrankenSTEEN.... Loved his acting esp. in that movie. I believe he co-wrote it. (?)

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    He left us a huge body of work, and for sure will both be remembered and missed.

    Man, what knockers must he be admiring at the pearly gates right now.

    He was the author to a great many laughs in m life. I can remember being about 12 or 13 when I sat down with my Dad to watch Blazing Saddles. I never thought my dad very funny until that day. After that we made a habit of watching all this Mel Brooks films together. What a classic act he was. He will be missed.

    Blazing Saddles is one of those movies that could not be made today, thank god we had him then

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    The following is a possible conversation between Clevon Little (Bart) and Gene Wilder (Jim) upon the latter's recent arrival in heaven:

    Bart: Are we awake?

    Jim: We're not sure. Are we... black?

    Bart: Yes, we are.

    Jim: Then we're awake... but we're very puzzled.

    Another meteoric Hollywood talent lost now to the ages, to be replaced by the generally mediocre pap of the modern actor heavily embellished with digital CGI to make you forget about the lousy acting. *sigh* Thankfully, Gene is forever preserved for us in mylar.

    @Mcitinner1 - Teri Garr filled that role wonderfully.

    Damn. I didn't know Cleavon Little died.
