Gene Wilder has been seen in many roles and has gone by many names, but if there is one talent that he shows an outright affinity for it is the comedic pause.
If you don’t remember his selection of side-splittingly funny scenes featuring the best comedic pauses in film history, you’ll be an all-new fan of Gene Wilder after this. There are no words to describe the artistry of the master of the comedic pause.
A profound dramatic effect is an asset to every actor and production when it’s properly effected. There is no better example of this art in action than each and every one of these scenes.
Each scene shows the legend simply bringing everything down to a grinding halt, and elevating each performance for it. Now that’s timeless comedy that’ll never stop being funny. There’ll never be another quite like the late Gene Wilder.
