What a way to break into the movies. Watch for Gene Wilder's small role in Bonnie and Clyde.
First there was the movie about a Broadway play and then a Broadway play made from the movie and then a remake of the movie about the Broadway play. Confused? Don't be. Just watch the original The Producers and see one of the funniest movies of all time.
It's hard to imagine that in the same year Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder made two of the great comedy classics of all time. The year was 1974 and moviegoers were rolling in the aisles at Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein.
Gene Wilder teamed up with Richard Pryor to become one of the most popular comic duos in cinema history. Silver Streak and Stir Crazy.
The Woman in Red - Gene Wilder wrote and directed and appears with his wife Gilda Radner.
