Young Frankenstein (1974)

An affectionate parody that pays homage to the Frankenstein films (from the novel 'Frankenstein' by Mary Shelley) directed by James Whale in the 1930s, 'Young Frankenstein' is both a zany comedy and a cinematic tour de force. Written by director Mel Brooks and the film's star, Gene Wilder, 'Young Frankenstein' has all the usual--and in this case slightly unusual--suspects: the reluctant scientist Frederick Frankenstein, who is actually the grandson of the infamous creature-creator (pronounced "Fronken-steen" and played by Wilder), his spoiled fiancé (Madeline Kahn), Igor the pop-eyed hunchback (Marty Feldman), his dizzy assistant (Teri Garr), the castle's hideous head housekeeper (Cloris Leachman), and, of course, the Monster (Peter Boyle). Highlights include the sets, which are the original ones used in the Whale films; the beautiful black-and-white cinematography; and the fine screenplay. Combining noirish elegance with uproarious sight gags and double entendres is a feat Brooks pulls off fabulously, directing the wonderful ensemble to act with sensitivity and humanistic feelings as well as with lunatic abandon. 'Young Frankenstein' is a treat from beginning to end.
