Gene Wilder, who starred in such iconic movies as Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory has died – he was 83-years-old.

Wilder’s nephew Jordan Walker-Pearlman said Monday (today) that the actor (and writer) died earlier this month in Stamford, Connecticut from complications from Alzheimer’s disease.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. Please enjoy our favourite Gene Wilder scene.
