WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY
1971, Warner Bros., 100 min, USA, Dir: Mel Stuart

"Invention, my dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation and 2% butterscotch ripple." Gene Wilder stars as mysterious pied piper Willy Wonka in this truly wondrous musical adaptation of writer Roald Dahl’s children’s classic, as five lucky holders of the Golden Tickets (Veruca Salt! Augustus Gloop!) and their parents venture inside the enchanted Wonka Chocolate Factory. Glorious, candy-colored direction by Stuart is matched by the iridescent score by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley (DR. DOLITTLE). With Jack Albertson, Peter Ostrum and Roy Kinnear.


BLAZING SADDLES
1974, Warner Bros., 93 min, USA, Dir: Mel Brooks

Mel Brooks’ third film as director took his politically incorrect humor (with a screenplay co-written by Richard Pryor) to new heights of hilarity. A corrupt politician appoints a black sheriff to cause havoc in a Western town, but is surprised when the new lawman (Cleavon Little) becomes a force to be reckoned with. With Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn and Harvey Korman.
