(CNN)Gene Wilder, who brought a wild-eyed desperation to a series of memorable and iconic comedy roles in the 1970s and 1980s, has died, his lawyer, Eric Weissmann, said.

He was 83.

He also portrayed a boozing gunslinger in "Blazing Saddles." READ MORE HERE http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/29/entertainment/gene-wilder-dead/index.html

  1. He gave us so many great laughs over the years. It didn't matter how many times we saw the scene. They were just as funny the twentieth time we watched and didn't we all watch them at least twenty times? Rest in peace, Gene! (Rob)
