This funny and inventive screenplay by Roald Dahl is based upon his best-seller “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Gene Wilder is at his zany best as Willy Wonka, owner of a world-famous sweet factory who offers the fabulous prize of a tour of his extraordinary premises to five lucky children. However, when the winners arrive to claim their reward, they are caught up in a series of incredible and exciting adventures as Willy Wonka tests their honesty. The Academy Award nominated soundtrack includes the hit “Candy Man”.
