Gene Wilder Memory

Tell me if this wasn't the most tender moment in Gene Wilder's career.

In this one scene his cynical, tyrannic Willie Wonka melts into a loving father figure. It conveys a similar tearful joy as when watching a candid "Daddy's home!" video of a military parent surprising their kids.

I always wanted to believe that WW was Charlie's real father.

And in my mind he always will be.
