His version of Willy Wonka will always be the definitive version.

So Sad. Gene defined several roles that later became musicals. In addition to the aforementioned Willy Wonka (which was superior in every aspect to the later remake with Johnny Depp) Gene created the roles of Leo Bloom in "The Producers" and Dr. Frankenstein in "Young Frankenstein". He was one of my favorite comic actors and will be sorely missed. RIP Gene :(
