It wasn't long, however, before Wilder became a Broadway regular in plays such as "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," and in 1967, he made his feature film debut in Bonnie and Clyde. A year later, Wilder would begin the most successful collaboration of his career when he accepted the role of Leo Bloom in Mel Brooks's The Producers. Wilder continued to keep audiences in stitches for most of the '70s, first in Brooks's Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein and then with Richard Pryor in Silver Streak and Stir Crazy.
With the death of his wife, comedienne Gilda Radner, in 1989, Wilder withdrew largely from performing.
Politically incorrect and relentlessly funny, Mel Brooks's take on Hollywood Westerns follows the tortured trail of freed slave Bart, who's elected sheriff of the racist town of Rock Ridge. He must foil a land-grabbing governor (Brooks) with help from a washed-up, pot-smoking gunslinger (Gene Wilder).
