(1971) Screen version of Roald Dahl’s children’s story about a candy manufacturer (Gene Wilder) who conducts an electrifying tour of his factory for the five lucky children who learn that greed and selfishness can be their own reward. Even the punishments, occasionally a bit gruesome for younger children, are in good fun. Director Mel Stuart manages to avoid the cloying sentimentality of similar children’s movies, though it’s never quite as magical as one would have hoped. (A-I -- general patronage)(G -- general patronage) AMC (cable)
