1971, Film: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory' was released on June 30, 1971. The film is a musical film adaptation of the 1964 novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. Directed by Mel Stuart, and starring Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka, the film tells the story of Charlie Bucket as he receives a golden ticket and visits Willy Wonka's chocolate factory with four other children from around the world.

Willy Wonka, for years a recluse in his factory, announces that five lucky people will be given a tour of the factory, shown all the secrets of his amazing candy, and one will win a lifetime supply of Wonka chocolate. Nobody wants the prize more than young Charlie, but as his family is so poor that buying even one bar of chocolate is a treat, buying enough bars to find one of the five golden tickets is unlikely in the extreme...
