Watch Trailer Director: Ron Frank
Cast: Gene Wilder, Mel Brooks, Alan Alda, Carol Kane, Rain Pryor

For nearly three decades, the comedic genius of Gene Wilder unfailingly brought laughs to millions of movie-goers. His filmography reads like a list of some of the all-time greatest comedies of the 1970’s and 80’s, with highlights like The Producers, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask), Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, and Silver Streak. Moreover, the characters that Gene played often transcended mere comedy as he was able to imbue them with a genuine likeableness and compassion.

Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Ron Frank’s thoughtful documentary Remembering Gene Wilder is a fitting tribute to one of Hollywood’s brightest stars, examining Wilder’s life on stage and screen, his personal relationships with people like Gilda Radner and Richard Pryor, and his post-film career as an Emmy-winning TV star, novelist, and painter. The world may never see a talent like Wilder’s again, and this touching film will serve to keep his memory freshly in the minds of people for generations to come.

This adoring documentary... offers ... a welcome reminder that those emotionally unpredictable but essentially decent souls Wilder often played got their authenticity from being, at heart, a lot like him.
