His desire to act started at the age of eight, when his mother was stricken with rheumatic fever. The doctor sternly warned the young boy that any stress may prove fatal. So, he impressed on him one important lesson: "try and make her laugh."

** By all accounts, he got along amazingly well with the child actors for ''Willy Wonka'', particularly Peter Ostrum, whom he shared most of his scenes with. When it came time to film his infamous outburst at the end of the film, Wilder heavily resisted the urge to tell him just ''how mad'' he was going to be. He didn't want to ruin his friendship with Peter, but also wanted to help capture authentic shock. Julie Dawn Cole and Denise Nickerson also adored working with him; in fact, the only one Wilder didn't get along with was Paris Themmen, the youngest and most immature of the child actors.

* LeslieNielsenSyndrome: Prior to ''Film/TheProducers'', Wilder worked in theater as a dramatic actor. He vented to Mel Brooks one night that everyone was laughing at his performances when they weren't meant to, to which Brook replied "Look in the mirror and blame God."
