The only movies I’ve seen with Gene Wilder are The Producers, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask, Silver Streak, Stir Crazy and one my favorite movies ever, Young Frankenstein, which he cowrote. They were all released between 1967 and 1980. But he was always excellent then, and in a couple episodes of Will and Grace early this century.
