Brooks’ farce on the vintage Universal Studios horror films featured a memorable cast, including Gene Wilder (1924-2016) as Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronkensteen”) Marty Feldman (1934-1982) as Igor, Madeline Kahn as Elizabeth, Teri Garr as Inga, Cloris Leachman as Frau Blücher, Kenneth Mars (1935-2011) as Inspector Kemp, an uncredited cameo by Gene Hackman as the blind man and Peter Boyle (1935-2006) as Frankenstein’s monster.
“Young Frankenstein:” A perfect film to kick off the month of October
42 years after its general release, Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein” still continues to delight audiences- both young and old. It is one of many spectacular films to kick off the Halloween season. For those that haven’t experienced Brooks’ farce on vintage horror, you will not be disappointed!
Another cult classic that is highly recommended from the writer of “Silver Screen Reflections.”
