An Insight Look at the making of Roald Dahl's original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory featuring Wolper protege Mel Stuart. In the late 1960s, the key team members of David L. Wolper Productions, who had been champions of TV documentaries, began to produce feature films. Among the first of their slate of features was a screen adaptation of Roald Dahl's notable 1964 book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. In 1970, Wolper's team, led by director Mel Stuart, went to Germany to film the movie version of the Dahl book. Entitled Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the film was released in 1971 to surprisingly minimal acclaim. Today, the film has elevated to cult classic status and is a favorite among new generations. In this exclusive program, Stuart opens up about the inception and making of Willy Wonka and how he first discovered the book. He discusses how and why the film was put together, details about the writing of the final script, creating principal photography on set and the eventual reception of the film both upon its initial release and in later years. Today, the film has elevated to cult classic status and is a favorite among new generations. Mel Stuart - Film Director & Producer: Stuart has directed or produced over one hundred and eighty films. Among the many acknowledgments of his work have been four Emmys, a Peabody Award, an Oscar Nomination and numerous awards from festivals around the world..
