silly gene, tricks are for kids.

My mother and I trade quips that you said in Young Frankenstein, which we have seen so many times. We love it more each time. Thank you for this movie and for all your work--of course, we loved Gilda too.

I wonder from time to time where Mr. Wilder is and what he is doing - hoping of course that he is still viewing life from his own of-so-wonderful and creative perspective (with just a hint of a smile from those beautiful blue eyes and one eyebrow slightly raised....)

I just saw (and heard) a TV commercial that featured Gene`s voice singing a song from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. It made me wonder how Gene`s doing and made me realize how much I`ve missed him and appreciated his humor over the years.

Karen BaluchMay 11, 2010

Dear Gene, I have been a fan of yours since I saw Sherlock Holmes Smarter Brother on my sixteenth birthday. Thank you for all your wonderful work. My God, you saved my life with that movie. Thank you for all the years of brilliant comedy since then..bless you and keep you.

Okay...so that`s NOT a picture of Gene`s wife you have here. I`m sure it`s a picture of A `Karen Boyer` but NOT the one who is currently Mrs Gene Wilder!
