A Salute to Gene Wilder
6:30P Screening of Young Frankenstein, conversation, Q&A and book-signing of the new novel “The Woman Who Wouldn’t”

Gene Wilder has been acting since he was thirteen. He was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Supporting Actor for his role as Leo Bloom in The Producers, which led to Blazing Saddles and another Academy nomination, this time for writing Young Frankenstein. Wilder has appeared in 25 feature films and a number of stage productions, and his memoir Kiss Me Like a Stranger was a national bestseller. Recently turning to fiction writing, Gene Wilder is the author of the novels My French Whore and the brand-new The Woman Who Wouldn’t.

SF Sketchfest is delighted to welcome the talented and beloved Gene Wilder to the Castro Theatre for this very special salute and screening of one of his classic collaborations with Mel Brooks, Young Frankenstein. After the screening, join Mr. Wilder for an in-depth conversation about his storied career. Afterwards, he will take your questions and sign copies of his new book The Woman Who Wouldn’t.
