Charlie receives a golden ticket to a factory, his sweet tooth wants going into the lushing candy, it turns out there's an adventure in everything.
Ernst Ziegler, who played Grandpa George, was nearly blind (from poison gas in the First World War), so he was instructed to look for a red light to guide him when his character was meant to be looking in a certain direction.
Bill, candy store owner:
All right, all right, all right, what's it going to be? A Triple Cream Cup for Christopher. A Sizzler for June Marie. And listen!
Bill, candy store owner: Wonka's got a new one today.
Children: What is it?
Bill, candy store owner: This is called a Scrumpdiddlyumptious Bar.
When everyone is in the hallway outside the nerve center (at around 1 min), they are all crouched down; when Wonka opens the door (to the Chocolate Room) they are all standing up straight with 6 feet of room on top of them (at around 4 mins). The room and hallway are full of other such optical illusions, so this is clearly an intentional artistic effect.
At the same time as the end credits are playing, the film shows the Wonkavator rising higher and higher.
