I don't know why someone hasn't done a movie portraying him. I, for one, are very grateful for this last round of updates...thanks very much for those responsible.
Oh, I thought you were the one who created the template in wikipedia based on the results section within this thread. Anyway, it's not that important. I just had a slight gripe about the non-inclusion of the true sources for the results.

A film, or even a documentary, about Wilding's life could certainly be very interesting, especially if it revealed a bit more about his private life than is currently known.
