Wilder began his career in 1961 but made his movie debut in the 1967 classic "Bonnie & Clyde".
He then went on to do some classic movie comedy that probably will never be topped. Those films include "The Producers", "Young Frankenstein" and the very bizarre "Willie Wonka & The Chocolate Factory".
The latter two films are the ones he will be most remembered for. He also starred in "Blazing Saddles", "Silver Streak" and "Stir Crazy".
Wilder was known for deadpan comedy and he could also do in your face schtick. A true comedy genius has left us, but we have a great legacy to remember him by.
