Mel Stuart, director of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, dead at 83


eheu he’s eating a lifetime supply of chocolate in Heaven now

Of all the director’s of Willie Wonka movies, he was the best.

Mr. Stuart gave us a ton of great movies and TV shows over the years, but the movie he made because his 10 year old daughter asked him to will always be his signature film.

Many people don’t know he also made a bunch (like, dozens) of terrific documentaries; my favorites are Four Days in November and Wattstax.

RIP, Mel. Ya done good.

oh yeah I remember now I have watched that Four Days in November movie. I liked it

I posted on Facebook:
