Fox Archives: Gene Wilder on the set of ‘Young Frankenstein’ (1974)


In memory of Gene Wilder, known for making us laugh, I’m sharing a few of my favorite photographs of him breaking character and having a few laughs of his own on the set of “Young Frankenstein,” distributed by 20th Century Fox Film in 1974.

Thank you for the laughs, Gene.

The Fox Archives is mandated to collect, catalog, preserve and make accessible the following assets of the 20th Century Fox studios: props, set decoration, photographs, art department and publicity materials from our film and television productions, and from the 20th Century Fox studio itself. We work primarily with internal Fox groups but also from time to time with outside organizations such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry.
