Alex Remmington reflects on one of America’s greatest comic actors:
Today is Gene Wilder’s 73rd birthday. One of America’s greatest comic actors, he hasn’t done much in front of the cameras in the past decade. He’s been writing, living relatively peacefully with a wife he adores, occasionally appearing in a feature article somewhere. He beat cancer a couple years ago after fighting it for years. He has aged as he acted, as he lived, as he pratfalled: gracefully.
Gracefully… or hysterically?
