!!The Film Itself



* The cast members had high praise for each other.
** At various points during the DVD Commentary, the now-grown kids sing Jack Albertson's praises.
** The young man who played Mike Teavee gave Creator/GeneWilder all kinds of grief, but he was very dear to Wilder later.
** Wilder made it clear that despite the fury that Wonka displayed, he loved Peter Ostrum, and he did for the rest of his life.
** When Augustus is introduced, the actors recognize the restaurant as one that they frequented during filming. They each speak fondly of the dessert menu.



* Meta-Example: Julie Dawn Cole's memoir ''I Want It Now'' is chock-full of these. For instance, she shares pictures of her original copy of ''Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'', where the entire cast wrote personal notes next to illustrations of their respective characters like a high school yearbook.
** Her birthday celebration also counts, from Gene arranging a color photographer to document her special day to the various gifts the cast gave her. In addition, her mother was able to come all the way to Munich with a birthday cake from their local bakery.
** The pic of Julie and Denise in Bavarian dresses is quite adorable.

* Creator/GeneWilder's passing in 2016 from Alzheimer's, despite being obviously saddening, the information regarding it is pretty heartwarming: The official statement [[http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2016/08/30/gene_wilder_s_family_issues_a_statement_on_his_alzheimer_s_and_circumstances.html released by his family]] announcing his death mentioned that Wilder had the disease since 2013, yet kept the news private until the end, as he did not want his youngest fans to worry about "poor old Mr. Wonka" and feel sad for him when they saw him in public. He couldn't bear the thought of being the cause of "one less smile in the world". Many celebrities end up regretting their iconic film roles and would have used their condition to either lash out or just as likely get people to leave them alone. Wilder on the other hand understood the power of the role and wanted to ensure that every child and adult who saw him would be comfortable coming up and saying hello. He cared for children THAT MUCH.
** The cast's tributes on Twitter also count.
-->'''Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca):''' "Time is a precious thing, never waste it." #genewilder :'(
-->'''Denise Nickerson (Violet):''' But weren't we so very fortunate to have been able to spend ANY time with such a beautiful soul, let alone 6-9 weeks!
** Peter Ostrum (Charlie) described Wilder's death as losing a parent. Also, upon learning of Gene Wilder's passing, Ostrum changed his social-media profile to read, "Former-child-actor, veterinarian, inherited a chocolate factory on 29 August 2016".
** Paris Themmen (Mike) posted a tribute picture on Facebook of the Wonkavator flying into the sky.

* Loved The ENTIRE ending, with Wonka giving Charlie his chocolate factory as the ending.prize. Doubled that Wonka doesn't even flinch or hesitate before Charlie asks if he can bring his family too.
