    Gene Wilder, who established himself as one of America’s foremost comic actors with his delightfully neurotic performances in three films directed by Mel Brooks; his eccentric star turn in the family classic “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”; and his winning chemistry with Richard Pryor in the box-office smash “Stir Crazy,” died early Monday morning at his home in Stamford, Conn. He was 83.

    A nephew, the filmmaker Jordan Walker-Pearlman, confirmed his death in a statement, saying the cause was complications of Alzheimer’s disease

    Hard to think of him as 83, he seemed ageless for so long (as conventionally unattractive people often do).

    A great talent and so sad about Gilda Radner.

    It's odd seeing recent reunions of the kids from "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."

    "Violet! You got anorexic!"
