DEF: Gene Wilder “Crazy”
As you’ve likely heard by now, actor Gene Wilder passed away on Monday at the age of 83. Wilder is known for many parts, including Willy Wonka inÂ Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Jim inÂ Blazing Saddles, and Dr. Frankenstein inÂ Young Frankenstein. Many of Wilder’s parts called for him to sing, and in line with that, he sang the theme song “Crazy” that played over the opening credits to the 1980 filmÂ Stir Crazy, in which he costarred with Richard Pryor. In memory of Wilder, his “Crazy” is today’s Daily Eighties Flashback.
