(Jun 9, 2017) The Lake Placid Film Forum will pay tribute to actor Gene Wilder on Sunday. Wilder, who passed away last summer, was best known for his roles in "Young Frankenstein" and "Blazing Saddles". He also starred as the title role in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory". His co-star in that film, Peter Ostrum, who played Charlie, will talk about his life as a child star, and working with Gene Wilder, after a matinee screening of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" at the Palace Theatre.
