Gene Wilder signature “Willy Wonka” hat from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Gene Wilder signature “Willy Wonka” hat from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory – (Warner Bros., 1971) From the collection of director Mel Stuart and with a letter of authenticity from him, comes this genuine copper-mine colored wool-felt top hat designed by Helen Colvig for Gene Wilder in the title role, and one of the greatest actor performances on screen, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Worn throughout the entire film by Wilder, being arguably the single most distinctive and memorable piece in his entire wardrobe ensemble. In fact, the image of this special hat and Wilder’s character in this film has become a symbolic icon in recent years for the child in all of us. Director Mel Stuart relates in the LOA how the hat was stashed away in his garage immediately after filming in 1971, and largely forgotten, until his son unearthed it many years later, making it available here. Band inside is dry and cracked, and brim has three small tears at edges, though overall it remains strong of shape and nicely presentable. Start Price : 20,000.00 | Estimates : 20,000.00 – 30,000.00
