WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (Theatrical Release USA 1971)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì
Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory—one of the BEST classic films made—perfectly blends the acting talents of legendary Gene Wilder and Jack Albertson with the directing talents of Mel Stuart.

Storyline

Poverty-stricken Charlie (Peter Ostrum) desperately desires a Willa Wonka Golden Ticket that will allow him a coveted private tour of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. His chances are slim to nothing for getting a ticket and he finally gives up hope when the last golden ticket goes to a Willy Wonka fan in South America. But sometimes appearances are deceiving as Charlie and his bedridden Grandpa Joe (Jack Albertson) discover.
