Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)

Director: Mel Stuart

Cast: Gene Wilder, Jack Albertson and Peter Ostrum

Curator’s Description: Based on the fantasy novel by Roald Dahl, this film was used to compare performance styles in an imaginative narrative compared to a theatrical, stage-like narrative. Gene Wilder’s performance as Willy Wonka was also compared to Johnny Depp’s more recent adaptation.
