1974 / 106 min / PG Course Language
Director: Mel Brooks
Cast: Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Marty Feldman

With Young Frankenstein, Mel Brooks managed to perfectly combine the romance and intrigue of the classic black & white Universal monster movies of the 1930s and 1940s with the shtick comedy that made Brooks famous.

With the script, Gene Wilder managed to write something not only witty and amusing but rife with the old-world nostalgia that made the original Universal monster films so appealing.

The film itself is ageless - shot beautifully in black & white, while using the original Universal Frankenstein sets.

The comedy is perfect in its execution and Gene Wilder is superb as Frederick Von "Fron-ken-steen" the brilliant neurosurgeon and grandson of Victor Von Frankenstein.

His charm, sharp-tongued wit and comedic timing really is a study on the craft of acting in itself. The supporting cast of actors are wonderfully cast and compliment each other perfectly, with the late Marty Feldman stealing the show as Dr. Frankenstein's loyal but slightly defiant assistant Igor.
