Wilder was a master at playing panicked characters caught up in schemes that only a madman such as Mel Brooks could devise, whether reviving a monster in “Young Frankenstein” or bilking Broadway in “The Producers.”

Also known for his role in  “Blazing Saddles” and as the candy man in the children’s favorite “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.”
