Wonka Wonders

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory has always been one of my favorite movies. USC is hosting an exhibit of photos and other materials from the movie.

From the web site...

David L. Wolper Center Exhibition

Sponsored by Information Services Division

Wed, May 28, 2003 through Fri, September 19, 2003 on Mondays, Wednesdays
and Fridays from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm

Admission: Free

Doheny Memorial Library (DML)
David L. Wolper Center, Ground Floor
University Park Campus

This exhibition features rare on-set photographs, production designs and
other material from the 1971 musical Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

The landmark film was co-produced by the Center's namesake beneficiary,
David L. Wolper, and he contributed much of the material on display.

Roald Dahl wrote the film's script, based on his own book. Dahl's offbeat
vision was so unexpected in a children's film that the movie was initially
received with bewilderment. It has since been recognized as a classic.
