‘Welcome my friends, welcome to my chocolate factory:’ a famous line in one of the twentieth century’s most classic films.
How about ‘Welcome to the Borderland,’ Veruca Salt and Mike Teevee?
Stars of the original film visited Alamo Drafthouse Saturday afternoon, meeting fans of the 1971 classic.
“My character was… a brat,” said Julie Dawn Cole, who played Veruca Salt. “She was the original, ‘I want it now’ girl. She wanted it, she got it, but of course, I blame her parents.”
Guests received a special edition Wonka poster signed by both actors.
