How sweet it is! This beloved 1971 family classic returns in scrumpdiddlyumptious 30th anniversary editions to delight a new generation. Wilder stars as the mysterious and elusive Willy Wonka Gene Wilder, who throws the world into a candy-buying tizzy when he sponsors a contest with a very special grand prize: a tour of his fantastic factory. Five children win, and four of them -- Veruca Salt, Augustus, Violet, and Mike -- are a ghastly bunch; spoiled, greedy, ill-mannered, and brain-dead from watching too much TV. Awaiting them are "little surprises around every corner" that translate to just desserts. It is up to the Oompaloompas the little people who work at Wonka's factory to reinforce in song the life lessons these children need to hear. Only impoverished Charlie, accompanied by his grandfather Jack Albertson, appreciates Wonka's world of pure imagination. Adapted by Roald Dahl from his own book, Willy Wonka survives the leap from page to screen with its fantastic characters and dark humor intact. Like The Wizard of Oz, this is a rare film that will transport viewers to a place where, in Wonka's words, "what you see will defy explanation." Both the VHS and DVD editions include an all-new documentary, "Pure Imagination," featuring interviews with Wilder. The DVD adds such treats as audio commentary by the now-grown Wonka kids, the original theatrical featurette about the making of the film, and sing-along Wonka songs. All right everybody, "Who can take the sunrise/Sprinkle it with dew..."?
All Movie Guide
As dark and sweet as the titular confection, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory 1971 overcame a lackluster theatrical release to become an adored black comedy/musical and family classic. Scripted by Roald Dahl from his children's book with an uncredited rewrite by David Seltzer, director Mel Stuart and set designer Harper Goff rendered the adventure a psychedelically colored trip through a candy factory that was equal parts children's paradise and creepy funhouse. Even as Gene Wilder's mysterious, purple-clad candy man Wonka extols the whimsical possibilities of "pure imagination," the orange-faced Oompa Loompas tunefully back up Wonka's message about the evils of parent-enabled gluttony, greed, and TV sloth. Though Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was greeted with audience indifference in 1971, Leslie Briscusse, Anthony Newley, and Walter Scharf's song score earned an Oscar nomination, and Sammy Davis Jr.'s version of "Candy Man" became a 1972 chart-topper. Given new life by TV and home video, legions of music makers and dreamers of the dreams have since succumbed to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory's wicked charms, leading to a 25th anniversary theatrical re-release in 1996.

    Unforgettable

    I have loved this movie every since I was a kid, I don't like the newer version. But his one is my very favorite and I had to have it on CD for so that my little grandaughter could watch it. Everyone needs to watch this movie at least once in a lifetime.

    Original Version

    It is a good fun movie for those of us that grew up during the 70's. Gene Wilder is quirky as Willy Wonka and reflects a time when bells and whistles weren't the seller of the movie. It just is entertainment which movies are supposed to do, entertain.
