It's Gene Wilder's birthday today. and while I can't get so worked up as to feature an entire post (as I could over Aaron Sorkin, apparently), Gene has certainly contributed to classic movies from my life.
EGOT stats: 2 Oscar nominations (Supporting Actor for The Producers; Adapted Screenplay for Young Frankenstein), and an Emmy win (Guest Actor, Will and Grace).
"Pure Imagination" by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley is a fantastic song, and perfect for a commercial. If only it hadn't been for shitty fucking AT&T and their pathetic as hell data network. I mean, their incredibly sucky voice network is only incredibly sucky. But their data network? Piece of shit.
Wilder survives Gilda Radner, whose loss is still sad.
Happy birthday dude! Rock on!
