Young Frankenstein is Mel Brook’s brilliant 1974 take on the Frankenstein tale, starring Gene Wilder, Marty Feldman, Teri Garr, Cloris Leachman and Peter Boyle as the monster, reviewed by regular FILM TALK contributor, Phil Campbell. A Film Talk classic movie review.
Gene Wilder plays a descendant of the notorious Victor Frankenstein in this parody of Universal’s 1931 classic. Much of the lab equipment used by Mel Brooks was created by Kenneth Strickfaden for Universal’s original production. To help evoke the atmosphere of the earlier films, Brooks shot the picture in black and white, and used 1930s’ style opening credits and scene transitions.
