20,000 Vinyl LPs 65: Young Frankenstein will eternally be Gene Wilder

I was very saddened to hear that one of my favorite comedians, Gene Wilder, died yesterday, August 29, 2016. He was 83.

I loved every film of his I saw but my two most favorite comedies were Young Frankenstein (1974) and The Producers (1968), both with Wilder.
