* WagTheDirector: Creator/GeneWilder insisted on the disability fake out / somersault bit being included in Wonka's introduction because he had read the book, and saw Willy Wonka as something of a trickster. Mel Stuart, who had basically waived audition protocol and simply given Gene the part based on his resume, was not about to turn Gene down. Gene was also in full control of his costume, from the dimensions to the colors to the number of pockets.
