This beaming, dancing, smiling and widehearted man, died today at the age of 83 in his home in Stamford.
Gene Wilder , or Jerome Silberman that was his name from birth, is one of my very dearest childhood crushes. I loved him in The Producers and
it was in Mel Brooks films I really understood the greatness of this man.
He was wellknown to use every inch of space to bring joy. His greatest fear was that there would be less laughter and smiling in the world.
God gave him so much, and he gave it back , to us! I wonder if he knew he was blessed?
I know, I don't normally do this kind of posts but I did warn you a while ago - I am a true cineast!!
