Sad news.  He's really been out of the limelight for at least the past 15 years, if not longer.  But damn, I will watch Young Frankenstein any time it comes on television.  That movie never gets old to me, and Gene Wilder was fantastic.

Some of my favorite movies Star Gee Wilder:

Blazing Saddles
Young Frankenstein
Silver Streak
Willy Wonka

Sad to hear he's gone.

That's my list too... Silver Streak is hidden gem.

Robert Vaughn of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. fame

Another guy you thought had been dead for years already. He will live on forever thanks to these Legal Aid ads though.

Always remember him best as "Gelt" the bounty hunter from "Battle Beyond the Stars". Fine actor!
