Looking for the Candy, Finding a Back Story
by bucy at 6:32 pm EDT, Jul 16, 2005

From the outside, Willy Wonka's factory is a grim, imposing industrial edifice towering over rows of red-brick shops and houses - something out of Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" planted in the landscape of Charles Dickens's "Hard Times."

I saw it last night and rather liked it. The more I've thought back on the 1971 film starring Gene Wilder, the more I remember how disappointed I was when I first saw it (on video) as a kid, having read the novels. According to
Wikipedia's article, Roald Dahl hated it.
