Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory


willywonkachocolateDirt-poor Charlie Bucket (Peter Ostrum) becomes one of five children to win exclusive tickets to a mysterious chocolate factory run by the seclusive Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder). The first filmization of the wonderful Roald Dahl book is an entertaining but uneven experience that has become a holiday favorite. The production design is imaginative, although it wouldnā€™t hurt if the contents of the chocolate river had actually looked like floating chocolate rather than sewage. Plenty of songs have been added, some of them not so memorable. Wilder is the right person to bring the odd Wonka to life.

1971-U.S. 98 min. Color.Ā Directed byĀ Mel Stuart.Ā Screenplay, Novel:Ā Roald Dahl (ā€œCharlie and the Chocolate Factoryā€œ).Ā Songs:Ā Anthony Newley, Leslie Bricusse (ā€œPure Imaginationā€, ā€œThe Candy Manā€, ā€œ((Iā€™ve Got a) Golden Ticketā€).Ā Production Design:Ā Harper Goff.Ā Cast:Ā Gene Wilder (Willy Wonka), Jack Albertson (Grandpa Joe), Peter Ostrum (Charlie Bucket), Roy Kinnear, Aubrey Woods, Michael Bollner.
