  • Charlie Bucket on Demand
    "This isn't exactly a sighting since it took place on the telephone, but close enough. My sister, sister-in-law and I were watching the Willy Wonka movie (yes, we are grown women) and decided to look up Peter Ostrum on the Net. We couldn't find anything, so we just looked in an Internet white pages and found him listed. My sis-in-law called him and he was really nice and didn't seem creeped out at all that grown women were obsessed with this movie. He said, 'I am sorry, but I am putting my kids to bed...Do you have my address?' We said [we did], and he said, 'Great. Write to me and I will send you something.' We did and he sent us an autographed picture of him and Jack Albertson from the movie." (Posted: October 2000)
