Two film versions of Roald Dahl's classic children's novel collected together in one set. In 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' (1971), directed by Mel Stuart, young Charlie Bucket (Peter Ostrum) wins one of the coveted 'Golden Tickets' from a Wonka Bar that allows its holder to take a trip around the eccentric Willy Wonka's (Gene Wilder) Chocolate Factory. Charlie and the rest of the winners find themselves in a magical world of chocolate rivers, Oompa Loompas, everlasting gobstoppers, lickable wall-paper, golden egg-laying geese and chilling tales to warn children not to misbehave. Roald Dahl wrote the screenplay from his own book. In Tim Burton's expansive remake, 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' (2005), Freddie Highmore plays Charlie, whilst Johnny Depp takes on the role of Wonka.
