THE FIRST DVD I EVER BOUGHT . . .



and that was a few months before I even purchased
my very first DVD player. I was just too excited to see
one of my favorite movies ever, the film I consider as


the "Casablanca" of children's films. And a large part
of that was due to Gene Wilder's role as Willy Wonka:


snarky and subversive, subtly lonely, a joyous genius, 

dangerous even; above all, a man of pure imagination.







My childhood would not have been complete without 
Willy Wonka. It was my Golden Ticket, and the reason
why I'll forever be transported by the magic of cinema.


Thank you, Mr. Wilder. It's been an unforgettable tour!
