Nice Interview

Role Model: Gene Wilder (2008)

*** (out of 4)

Turner Classic Movies production has Adam Baldwin sitting down with movie legend Gene Wilder for a candid interview that covers WIlder's early career, hit movies and then his retirement from the screen. Over the years I can't recall the number of people who would ask me if Wilder was dead or not and it seems if he has been since he rarely does any interviews. I can't remember the last time I saw him doing anything so it's a great treat getting to see him here. His walk is a little slower but overall his is in great spirit throughout the film and still has that wonderful timing when telling his stories. We get to hear about his work on Bonnie and Clyde as well as his golden period with Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles. Baldwin eventually asks him about love and talk turns to Gilda Radner and Wilder comes off with some shocking things to say. There's also talk about Richard Pryor and the two men's relationship, which was nice to hear. Baldwin does a good job asking all the right questions but I think the film runs a tad bit too short (around 60-minutes) to cover everything as there are several films that are never mentioned.
