EP. 404.5 — Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
Amy & Paul make the world taste good with 1971’s sweet and sour Roald Dahl adaptation Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory! They learn why “Charlie” was removed from the film’s name, discover how Gene Wilder found his way into the character of Wonka, and ask whether children’s films today have the same element of real danger. Plus: How did the chocolate river room smell?
