    45 stars hereMy favorite movie of all time is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory the original version starring Gene Wilder People who ask Which version flummox me; as far as I'm concerned there was never any reason to remake it in the first placeThe book has always been a favorite of mine too; in fact Roald Dahl is one of those authors whose books were such an integral part of my childhood Interestingly I've seen the movie so many times and it's been a while since I read the book so I sometimes forget which things were carried over into the film and which things were created anewLucy Mangan's Inside Charlie's Chocolate Factory was written in 2014 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Dahl's book For fans of the story and the movie this book is a treasure trove of trivia memorabilia and fascinating facts about what led Dahl to write the book his life at the time it was written and the inspirations behind each of the movie adaptations Some things I knew and some things I was really surprised bySome things I found really interesting The name Willy Wonka was pulled nearly out of thin air—Dahl's brother used to make a kind of boomerang for him which he called Skilly Wonka so when Dahl sat down to write the book he remembered that and decided to change two letters in the name and the rest is history Broadway actor and eventual Academy Award winner Joel Grey was one of director Mel Stuart's first choices to play Wonka in the 1971 film yet despite his proven ability to sing dance and act he felt Grey wasn't physically imposing enough to be a surrogate father figure to the children They found out later that Fred Astaire had been interested in playing the part but nothing came to fruition; perhaps the fact that Astaire was in his early 70s at the time convinced him not to pursue it Although in my mind and the mind of countless moviegoers through the years Gene Wilder was truly the uintessential Willy Wonka apparently Dahl disliked Wilder's portrayal Apparently he wanted an actor like Peter Sellers and he was unhappy that Wilder was completely wrong for the role playing it for subtle adult laughs Ironically that's one of the things I love so much about his performance—the sly asides which became clearer with multiple viewings and getting older This book once again reminded me why I love Willy Wonka the character and the movie so much Mangan did some terrific research and although the book doesn't uite follow a linear path—it jumps between the book and the movie adaptations from time to time—Mangan keeps your interest the whole way through This is as much a story of Dahl as it is his characters and his creative processYou don't have to be the kind of person who knows the entire movie word for word used a uote from the movie as his senior uote in college We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams and has a collection of character figurines in their office at work to enjoy this book If you have fond memories of being read or reading Dahl's original book or watching the movie you'll enjoy this deliciously delightful trip into the world of pure imaginationSee all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoriablogspotcom or check out my list of the best books I read in 2017 at

    This is a behind the scenes look at the book the film and stage adaptations and their influence on popular cultureBy far the most satisfying parts are about the novel It took Dahl six drafts before he got it right In the early drafts Willy Wonka had a family and there were ten children let into the factory including Elvira Entwhistle Marvin Prune and Bertie Upside Dahl’s macabre sense of humour hitherto reserved to his short stories is pronounced with each draft ‘No boy of mine is going to put in shop windows and sold as vanilla fudge We’ve spent far too much on his education already’ Mangan suggests Wonka was an obliue portrait of Dahl himself zany mercurial sly tender It seems probable In real life Dahl insisted the names of the great chocolate makers Cadbury especially should be studied in schools alongside the Kings and ueens That idea much like this book is no bad thing

    It wasn't what I expected I didn't need to see book covers from all over the world That's not interestingThe behind the movie stuff is what I came for Here goesSo Roald Dahl hated Gene Wilder's interpretation of Willy Wonka Not a big surprise And that the kiddie actors grew up and did other things Everyone know that nowI guess there weren't many child labor laws back then since it says that Violet had to stay in the blueberry costume for 12 hours at a time and that she could only drink shakes during the shooting That was pretty interestingI'm glad I read it I just was underwhelmed that's all

    This is a thoroughly researched beautifully designed book that is clearly a labor of love The author has color photos of original documents and artifacts stills from movies and There is a chapter on the four illustrators that shows the way each of them illustrated a particular moment or character in the book side by side You get backstory on Dahl's life and family the writing of the book the adaptations and interestingly the criticism of the book from early on The author is respectful I think regarding the issue of racism and does a clear job of breaking down Marxist and Freudian criticisms Primarily this celebrates the book though Clearly the favorite of the author she tackles it from just about every direction and manages to still produce a clear and engaging narrative It's a fun ride if you choose to take it

    This was published commemorating the 50th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s story “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and fans of the book and movies will love learning about how the story was written evolved and was turned into various other formats movies plays and even an opera Glimpses behind movie scenes into Roald Dahl’s life and family and all kinds of fascinating minutia – including all of the different Wonka chocolates and candies that have been produced over the years – inform and delight One particularly interesting detail is how much librarians lambasted it when it was first released Many felt that it was immoral and one critic even went so far as to claim it was harmful to children This lovely collection will whet readers’ appetites for a return to the original work and encourage them to revisit the movies as well – perhaps with a delicious chocolate candy bar in hand

    35 I was hesitant to read this because of recent criticisms to Roald Dahl's character but after reading this book for what seems the hundredth time yet for the first time as a novel study with a class I wanted to learn about this wonderful chocolate factory So when I saw that my library had it I immediately took it outFirst of all I just want to acknowledge all the research that went into this I particularly enjoyed seeing the character comparisons from each illustrator how they were adapted on screen in the two films and the wanna be psych theorist in me appreciated the theories of criticism chapter It pains me to read all the criticism surrounding the 1971 movie especially from Dahl himself because that movie will forever be magical to me It's amazing just how big of a franchise one idea came to be

    This book was interesting for the pictures than anything else I didn't really learn anything new about the movie that I hadn't already learned in the book Pure Imagination but it was interesting to look through A lot of it dealt with comparing the 1970's Wonderful Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory to the 2005's Lame Charlie and the Chocolate Factory mainly by showing side by side pictures of various scenes Really interesting but it confirms my belief that Charlie was made to be a much different movie Anyway the book is interesting and talks a lot about Roald Dahl including how to pronounce his name so contrary to what I said before I did learn a few things from the book It's not the best book on the classic moviebook but it's worth a look


  10. Julie Julie says:

    This is a celebration of the phenomenon of Roald Dahl’s most famous book Charlie and The Chocolate Factory The writing of the book is covered the author is discussed and you get to see a lot of the cover art of the different book versions by various artists The two movies are dissected And of course there has to be a discussion made of all the candy produced under the Willy Wonka brand Finally I was gob smacked to learn was there was an actual opera production of it Check it out at Very interesting
