Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Plot hole: In the end of the movie, when Willy Wonka decides to visit his father, his father does not recognize him until he looks at his "rare teeth." But the wall of newspaper printings that Charlie was looking at included a recent enough picture of Willy that the father would have definitely recognized him, before seeing his teeth, as Willy doesn't look like a normal person with that outfit.
