Gene Wilder’s 10 Greatest Movies Of All Time [VIDEO]
In honor of the Gene Wilder’s birthday Monday, we made a list of his 10 greatest movies of all time. If you haven’t seen any of these on our list, run out and do so right away.
Born Jerome Silberman, Wilder was not only an incredible actor, but a screenwriter, director, producer and even singer-songwriter. The legendary actor was born in 1933 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He got his first big break in Hollywood when Mel Brooks cast him as Leopold Bloom in “The Producers” in 1967, and the rest as they say is history.
Picking just 10 of Wilder’s best works with a library spanning more than 40 years on the big and small screen proved to be a fun challenge. But taking a look through his RottenTomatoes.com scores for his biggest movies, plus a bit of our own personal favorites, we came up with the following list.
Of course his part as the wacky Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, in the classic Mel Brooks take on monster movies made our list. But check out the link to see if your favorites also made the cut.
While it is always tricky trying to please everyone, we are pretty sure even the biggest fans would have to agree that these go down as great moments in movie history.
Happy Birthday, Gene!
