Director Mel Brooks’ hilariously abby-normal homage to 1930s monster movies – one of the strangest, funniest, most brilliantly conceived comedies since the heyday of the Marx Bros. Gene Wilder (who co-wrote the script) stars as Dr. Frankenstein (“That’s Frahnk-en-steen”), grandson of the famed mad scientist, struggling to breathe life into tap-dancing monster Peter Boyle with demented help from hunchback assistant Marty Feldman, lusty Teri Garr, neurotic girlfriend Madeline Kahn and Frau Blucher herself, Cloris Leachman. Kenneth Mars is outlandishly memorable as one-eyed, one-armed German Inspector Kemp, “ze leader of zis community!”
“The biggest problem we had in doing YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN was that we had to do so many takes because we couldn’t stop laughing.” – Teri Garr.
1974, 20th Century Fox, 105 min.
