One of the most memorably strange children's films ever made, equally influenced by the dark underpinnings of Roald Dahl's original book ("Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"), the psychedelic illustration style of the late '60s, and "The Wizard of Oz". Gene Wilder is both charming and sometimes menacing as Willy Wonka, enigmatic ruler of a magical candy kingdom that is visited by five young contest winners and their parents. The spoiled children meet some bizarre and rather disturbing fates, while good-hearted Charlie receives the ultimate reward. Screenplay by Dahl, with songs by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley. With Jack Albertson, Peter Ostrum and those unforgettable Oompa Loompas. Remade in 2005 as "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory".
