Ah man. I like Wilder very much. Heard an interview a few years ago when he was looking quite fragile. Still lucid though.. RIP.

I heard an interview with a family member. As life got tough he pulled away from public life because his work was about making people happy. He didn't want his struggles to be out there publicly making people sad.
