Mel Brooks' monstrously crazy tribute to Mary Shelley's classic pokes hilarious fun at just about every Frankenstein movie ever made. Summoned by a will to his late grandfather's castle in Transylvania, young Dr. Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) soon discovers the scientist's step-by-step manual explaining how to bring a corpse to life. Assisted by the hunchback Igor (Marty Feldman) and the curvaceous Ings (Teri Garr), he creates a monster (Peter Boyle) who only wants to be loved.
Features new behind-the-scenes footage, bloopers, and outtakes, including the reading of the Frankenstein will in Transylvania, an "intellectual discussion" between Dr. Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) and Inga (Teri Garr), the monster's encounter with highwayman Jack Sprat, and more.

nake ne laugh .... Gene Wilder was one of the greatest comedy talents .... but the entire cast
made it one of the funniest movies ever!
if you have any inclination for the deep silliness (and the sometimes subtle and knowing satire) of Mel Brooks.
Five BRILLIANT comedy actors, as featured on the cover, all at the TOP of their game. Great score & reverential black and white photography.
PLUS, a multiplicity of totally cool character performances, including 1) Gene Hackman as a blind, lonely monk that comforts the monster, 2) Cloris Leachman, at her crustiest, as former lover of this Dr. Frankenstein's father, and now "house mother" of the castle, and 3) Kennth Mars as Inspector Kemp, the local highly formal and Germanic sheriff of the village, who leads the mass uprisings of the peasants against Dr. Frankenstein. "A riot is an UNGLY thing ... UNDT, I think dat it is CHUST about time VE HAD VUN" !!
Wilder's over-the-top extension of his creepy but loud Willie Wonka character is the only part that gets old. Does he always have to shout when excited? It is fun to watch the documentary...and realize that he CAN talk in a normal voice.
