Veruca Salt, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

with 7 comments

That’s a pretty awesome performance by a child actress! And after her possible death, which Willy Wonka played by Gene Wilder doesn’t seem very perturbed by, below we see the Oompa Loompas singing in celebration.

  1. Ha. I remember my mom groaning at the TV over that bit about “the kid is a brat… who’s to blame? The Mother and the Father!” I rubbed it in, of course, laughing. That’s right mom! It’s the parents’ fault! The parents’ fault!

  3. This would be considered “dark comedy” by sensitive 21st century standards.

  4. One thing that’s striking about the 1971 movie is that Augustus Gloop (the fat kid) is actually pretty svelte by the standards of 2017.

  5. Yes, fantastic performance by a child. See? More was expected from children then.

    It’s worth, by the way, contrasting this movie with the more recent – and lame – version with Johnny Depp. The Oompa Loompa song from the original is an absolute classic.

    I love when Wonka exchanges a knowing glance with the adults, saying that “Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker…”

  6. Yes but in a stunning reversal, after surviving the harrowing egg disposal unit Veruka went on to marry the heir to the Hershey Empire. She used it to run Wonka out of business and now Charlie is a fry cook at her palatial chocolate palace, making her eggs for breakfast. How? By revealing the horrible secret that Wonka employed illegal aliens at his factory who weren’t even educated or vaccinated.
