The Candy Man

The Candy Man

Gene Wilder was an expert at making me laugh. I remember him best as Jim ‘The Waco Kid’ in Blazing Saddles …

Jim : Look at my hand.
[raises hand and holds it level]
Bart: Steady as a rock.
Jim:[raises his other hand, which is violently trembling] Yeah, but I shoot with this one.

And of course as Willy Wonka:
So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it. Thank you. 

I will indoctrinate the Tiny Empress and the Pre-Tween Queen so his genius will live on.
