Violet Beauregarde aka "The Blueberry Girl" smile In the movie, her dad owned a used car dealership. In the remake, she was from Atlanta.

Of course you don't know. You don't know because only I know. If you knew and I didn't know, then you'd be teaching me instead of me teaching you - and for a student to be teaching his teacher is presumptuous and rude. Do I make myself clear?

Long standing knowledge for everyone who is from Miles City. I always wondered why they thought Violet should have an accent!

Denise Nickerson Date of Birth 1 April 1957, New York City, New York, USA

The accent was part of the package I think.

Also! I grew up convinced that DeLuxe was Sam's car lot. And that the Holly Sugar plant in Hardin was Wonka's factory.

I was a big kid and was called "Agustus!" for many years until "Stripes" came out and they (namely my sister) started calling me Dewey Oxburger...

So I called her "Clyde" due to her resemblance to the orangutan from "Any Which Way But Loose"

To this day we sometimes don't fight

I was sitting in the Montana Theater one fine day many years ago, along with a whole lot of other folks, and when the words "Miles City, Montana" were spoken, the entire theater gasped. I believe in Marble Falls, Ariz. and I think they believe in us.

cash, that is very interesting. I used to watch that movie as a kid and never knew that little fact (we are new to MC) thank you for posting!

This is the truth, I must have seen the movie at the drive-inn theater in the summer of 1971 or 1972. In my state of mind (more than likely contributed to by Hal N.) I was trying to figure out "HOW" they where able to change the town of a contestant to the town the movie was currently playing in. I think it was the spring of 1982 when my thinking cleared up. eek!

Such a great movie. Johnny Depp and Tim Burton suck. I wish I had a million dollars for every great idea someone else came up with.

This statement shows that you don't read.

Why, did he write James and the Giant Peach? Go procreate yourself.

Sorry Buck for the off the cuff remark. It was very poorly worded. What I should have said is that there is no comparing the movies. I congratulate Burton and Depp since they were much more faithful to the dark tone of the Willy Wonka character, at least as I remember reading the book. The first remark was more of a comment that people usually like it more when the movie is faithful to the book, which I feel the Gene Wilder version lacked. I will also say the computer generated Oompa Loompas (sp?)in the Burton Version sucked golden goose eggs.

So now that I've procreateed myself, can we be friends? smile

Procreate, I guess.

The Burton version is garbage. No songs. The remastered version of the original is so dope.
