About this title

Synopsis:

Ever since his big screen breakthrough as phobia ridden accountant Leo Bloom in "The Producers," Gene Wilder has been one of America's most beloved comic actors. For five decades, Wilder has entertained audiences in some of the funniest films ever made, including "Blazing Saddles," "Young Frankenstein," and "Stir Crazy." Brian Scott Mednick's fascinating new biography "Gene Wilder: Funny and Sad" (BearManor Media) reveals a very serious and private side to Wilder that audiences don't get to see. The book traces Wilder's humble beginnings in 1930s Milwaukee as a shy child who learned early on that being funny got him attention.

From the Back Cover:

For five decades, Gene Wilder has been making moviegoers laugh, having appeared in some of the funniest films ever made.  But in "Gene Wilder: Funny and Sad," readers will discover a very serious and private side to him that audiences don't get to see.  Following a childhood overshadowed by his mother's ill health, he endured two broken marriages; the untimely death of his third wife, comedienne Gilda Radner; and a grueling battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.  Along the way there were his legendary partnerships with Mel Brooks and Richard Pryor; box-office hits like "Blazing Saddles," "Young Frankenstein," and "Stir Crazy"; a late-in-life career as an author of fiction; and true happiness with fourth wife Karen, who trained him for his deaf role in "See No Evil, Hear No Evil."  This first ever biography of Gene Wilder - the product of years of extensive research and interviews with Wilder's colleagues - is an honest, enlightening portrait of one of America's favorite funnymen.
