One of the greatest of all times. I enjoyed anything Gene did. His movies with Richard Pryor are legendary.

None could ever replace him in Willy Wonka, not even Johnny Depp!

Although everyone wants to talk about him now being able to be with Gilda Radner again in heaven, which is a nice thought. However, many people are ignorant to the fact that he did remarry and had been married to Karen for 25 years. The tabloids seem to diminish Karen's loss during what is surely one of the saddest times of her life.

You can always count on the tabloids to make something of nothing. If anyone should be able to enjoy a drama free death it is Gene. He was an outstanding talent and an outstanding citizen. Are people still reading tabloids these days? With so many other ways to get information how are they still in business?

Me and wife started doing the same thing yesterday. At least he had a full life. 93 is a long time to live. Rest in peace to one of the greats.

I'm so sad to hear about his passing. I was a huge fan of his. I've must have watched Charlie and the chocolate factory a million times

Actually I think he died at the age of 83 but that is still a very productive life.

Gene Wilder was born Jerome Silberman. He could not have chosen a better name to start his career. He was always the wilder person in the room.

Wow. I did not know that. I wonder if he did any old films under his birth name?

After the funnyman's third wife, Saturday Night Live original cast member Gilda Radner, passed away from ovarian cancer in 1989, Wilder founded the Gilda Radner Ovarian Cancer Detection Center in Los Angeles and began working to promote cancer awareness. (He was previously married to Mary Mercier and Mary Joan Schutz.)

The decision to wait until this time to disclose his condition wasn't vanity, but more so that the countless young children that would smile or call out to him 'there's Willy Wonka,' would not have to be then exposed to an adult referencing illness or trouble and causing delight to travel to worry, disappointment or confusion," the statement read."He simply couldn't bear the idea of one less smile in the world.
