WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY
Introduction to the film by director Mel Stuart.
WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY
1971, Warner Bros., 100 min, USA, Dir: Mel Stuart

"Invention, my dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation and 2% butterscotch ripple." Gene Wilder stars as mysterious pied piper Willy Wonka in this truly wondrous musical adaptation of writer Roald Dahl’s children’s classic, as five lucky holders of the Golden Tickets (Veruca Salt! Augustus Gloop!) and their parents venture inside the enchanted Wonka Chocolate Factory. Glorious, candy-colored direction by Stuart is matched by the iridescent score by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley (DR. DOLITTLE). With Jack Albertson, Peter Ostrum and Roy Kinnear.
