Gene Wilder is THE MAN - royalty now, in my opinion. Too bad he gave up on Hollywood. His movies are so ingrained with my youth and my first experiences going to the movies.
"Nice vase."I am in an Italian Commedia troupe here in California... I lift a lot of my character from Dom Delouise in this film... maybe not so much the lines he speaks (which are almost assuredly 75% improvisation) but his whole demeanor and schtick. This movie is flipping brilliant.
And - what did you think Wes? I mean, I can tell you liked it, but how great were those guys...? These movies are what makes it hard for me to digest people like Seth Rogan, Jimmy Fallon, Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell -- they can't touch the comedians of yesterday - not by a long shot. The scene where Gene and bad guy are fighting on the carriage with the giant hand and boot - lolThis is back when comedians could be funny without toilet humor. We watched it tonight. My dad vaguely remembers taking mom to see it at the movies but he isn't sure.
I don't know. Leslie Nielson made his own fart machine. In an interview, someone asked him what he wanted on his tombstone, and that's the noise he made. I think a lot of the older comedians did toilet humor, but they didn't rely on just that.Iyou can't go wrong with Leslie Neilson but he never really did much gross humor either.
