The 76-year-old resurfaced at his book signing in L.A. on Monday, looking fun.

Gene Wilder

In 1999, Gene was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and underwent chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant. Since 2005, he has been in complete remission.

Wilder just released a book of short stories called "What Is This Thing Called Love?"

Oh this man is one of my absolutely all-time favorites!!!! You never hear anything bad about him and his quirkiness (or whatever it is) that he has makes him so very likeable on screen and off. I have never seen a movie he was in I didn't just love! Willie Wonka, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, The World's Greatest Lover, Sherlock Holmes Smarter Younger Brother....you name it, he's just awesome!

Awesome actor...despite his age, his eyes still shine through. I guess that is why I have a thing for Scandinavian women with blue eyes, no matter how old they are those eyes remain mesmerizing for ever.

What a LEGEND. Great actor, not only that. This guy has managed to stay out of the news. I've never once heard anything remotely bad about Gene.

Goes to show you he has lived an honorable life, made some great movies, which, btw, most of which mad us all laugh.

How can you not applaud this man?

I am just laughing now to myself thinking about his movies.

From Blazing Saddles

Bart: Are we awake?
Jim: We're not sure. Are we... black?
Bart: Yes, we are.
Jim: Then we're awake... but we're very puzzled.

Bart: What's your name?
Jim: Well, my name is Jim, but most people call me... Jim.
