competition to a small number of children into his factory to select one of them to be his successorCharlie wins one of the tickets The hard school of his poverty having made him virtuous he manages to survive all the other children whose gross moral turpitudes cause them to be eliminatedHaving won the right to become Willy Wonka s successor he wins himself a seuel adventure but this involves travelling to the moon in an elevator rather than changing the employment practises of the factory and the introduction of a living wage Proving I suppose there is a limit to the amount of fantasy you can fed a child before it becomes completely unbelievable Gene Wilder June 11 to the amount of fantasy you can fed a child before it becomes completely unbelievable Gene Wilder June 11 August 29 2016 Goodbye Gene you ll always be Willy Wonka to meCharlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl first published in 1964 was an immediate children s classic and has inspired two film versionsI was surprised to see that neither of the films came close to Dahl s text Dahl s Willy Wonka is a ark creature who killed children crushed their bones and baked them into the candy barsJust kiddingThis is of course a The Exposition of Artistic Research delightful children s young adult fantasy featuring the inimitable Willy Wonka The 1971 musical filmirected by Mel Stuart and featuring Gene Wilder and Jack Albertson has long been a family favorite and I grew up loving the songs and Wilder s performance Interestingly according to IMDB so you know its true Peter Ostrum the child actor who portrayed Charlie Bucket only ever appeared in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory it was his only film credit He is now a veterinarianCharlie and the Chocolate Factory Tim Burton s 2005 adaptation starring Johnny Depp and Christopher Lee was also very entertaining and I have enjoyed watching it as well So it was no surprise that I finally got around to reading Dahl s original novel I was curious to see which film version came closest to Dahl s vision and I can surprisingly report that though they both come close to the original text both rely heavily on artistic license and the kind of freedoms a irector will often take when translating a literary work into filmBrilliant uirky and original this is a short work that a fan of the films or of children s fantasy literature should take the time to thoroughly enjoy Jess my 7 year old little girl gives it 5 starsComments while reading How come someone is called Gloop And Salt Isn t that the thing that we use for cooking What is spoiled Oh okay I
