How does my questioning it make it any less pure though? A quick google search shows I'm not the only one to have come up with the observation
"Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar." Freud
45 years of amateur analysis doesn't change that.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I never really got that vibe from the Willy Wonka movie but I did from the remake Charlie and the Chocolate factory.

This thread my good sir is a farce, crude characterization and a ludicrously acrid sense of timing . Of all days to write such a thing you couldn't even wait a single day after the man died to use his death to increase your useless star count.
what the hell is wrong with people today..

Perhaps the Willy Wonka character in the movie versions seemed like a pedo, but from what I remember about the book, Wonka was a mean prick that basically liked to tortured kids with bad habits. Weird yes, but more interested in teaching a hard lesson to bratty little punks and their parents.
If anything the writers and directors gave the movie characters that pedo vibe, certainly not the fault of the actors who were trying to give life to the Wonka that the director wanted.

Everything boils down to sex because you're an animal that evolved into a human animal that acts on merely instincts and doesn't have any great intuition or higher intelligence than any other animals. 😏a reply to: intrepid

'sociopath member' I have learned here on ATS to temper my indignation on some of these Lame, provocative and ultimately libelous claims and dismiss them as cheap shot ploys to gain a couple extra stars, nothing more.
I find myself doing it here. Again. I would lend a jaundiced eye towards YOU much quicker than I would towards Gene Wilder aka Willy Wonka.
