There’s been some buzz on the web about the auction of some Steve McQueen-related film items, like his jacket from LeMans and his Husqvarna motocross bike. That’s all well and good, but what’s been left unmentioned is the real gem of the sale: Gene Wilder’s costume from Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The bidding starts at a generous $40,000, but on the plus side: it’s guaranteed to take you to a world of pure imagination.
