Twenty-five years after this merry movie debuted its tasty blend of song, story and life lessons, the Candy Man still enchants, especially now in a vibrant new print with a soundtrack remade in stereo. From beloved author Roald Dahl (James and the Giant Peach), Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a scrumptious treat coated with captivating tunes. Charlie Bucket (Peter Ostrumas) is one of five lucky Golden Ticket holders who win a tour of the factory run by wily mogul Wonka (Gene Wilder). There Charlie, his feisty Grandpa Joe (Jack Albertson) and others have fun, make mischief and discover a kind heart is a finer possession than a sweet tooth.
