The world lost an icon earlier this week. Gene Wilder, comedic actor extraordinaire, star of "Blazing Saddles," "Young Frankenstein," "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" (the good one, not that pile of Depp from a few years ago), husband of Gilda Radner, passed away at age 83 from complications related to Alzheimer's. Mr. Wilder wasn't working much in his later years, but you can see his last talk show appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien in 2008, and it's worth a look. Godspeed, Mr. Wilder.
