It's no coincidence that after the end of the lollipop guild that other candy-based organizations are under fire.

Aw no. I got to meet her and the other Wonka kids at a convention last year. She sweet but a very small and frail lady.

I wanted to like it, but then Johnny Depp and Tim Burton farked it up and made it like every other Time Burton movie.

I used to like Tim Burton, but his schtick is getting old and tired.

Nah...I don't have a foot fetish. (quite the opposite actually) but as I was scrolling past that photo, i noticed it looked like that actress had just 4 toes and how awkward that photo looked.

Just a simple observation. Nothing more, nothing less.

Colorado. I know a former coworker of hers.


I think she moved there later.  She was born in NYC.  There are some interesting might-have-beens in her IMDB:

Though most people remember her as the gum-chewing brat Violet Beauregarde in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971), Denise played a very different character in a famous stage disaster--a musical production of Lolita (1962) (called "Lolita, My Love," which also starred Leonard Frey and Dorothy Loudon). The musical was written by John Barry and Alan Jay Lerner, and although it failed, many of its songs have since been recorded. She was considered for the role of Regan in The Exorcist (1973) but her mother refused to allow her to screen-test for it after reading the script. Auditioned for the part of Princess Leia Organa in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977).

That date for the Lolita musical must be off--she would have been five years old.

Ah, here we go.  The musical closed in 1971, the same year Wonka came out, and she was the second actress to play Lolita, the first having been fired after the critics savaged the opening in Philadelphia.

If you must, you can hear her performing one of the songs from the musical here.

Were the lyrics in the remake taken directly from Roald Dahl's book?

That would require me to read a book, so there's that.

Actually, I like reading, but hate to say I've never read that one.  Or if I have, I do not remember it.

I still stand by: The music in the new is better than the old.

Oompa Loompa old = one song (same tune, different words)
Oompa Loompa new = several different songs

And there is no "Cheer up Charlie"

/If the lyrics ARE from the book, even better!
//If the lyrics from the old ARE from the book...
///Still the same ONE song over and over again
