Remembering Gene Wilder is a heartfelt tribute to the beloved star of such movie classics as The Producers, Blazing Saddles, and Young Frankenstein. His remarkable life is told through never-before-seen home movies and photographs, as well as the intimate insights of friends and colleagues including Mel Brooks, Alan Alda, Carol Kane, and Gene’s wife, Karen Wilder.

Born Jerome Silberman, his roots in comedy began as a child when his mother suffered a heart attack. Her doctor told him never to argue with his mother and, instead, try to make her laugh. And that he did as well as audiences throughout his prolific career.

But he also experienced tragedy with the pre-mature death of his wife, comedian Gilda Radner, and suffered the ravages of Alzheimer’s in his later years. Remembering Gene Wilder will make you laugh and make you cry, but most of all, make your remember his wonderful films and comedic genius.
