EVERYTHING comes wonderfully to life in this dead-on Mel Brooks horror spoof non-stop laughs from beginning to end! (by gbrumburgh)
Mel Brooks' parodies are like your favorite, worn-out couch. You know it's not the greatest in style, taste and quality, but it just feels so damn comfortable. Of late, most of Mel's spoofs have been off the mark, his work mellowing into predictability. In fact, you really have to go all the way back to 1974 to see Brooks at his sharpest. In that year we were awarded "Blazing Saddles" AND "Young Frankenstein."Perhaps "Young Frankenstein" is not definitive Mel Brooks, although he directed it. Gene Wilder, who not only stars but co-wrote it with Mel, <more>
was the inspiration to make this movie. And it's his influence, I think, that brings the best out in Mel. When spoofing a historical era, movie genre or legendary tale, Brooks' satirical bag of tricks always included a hodgepodge of crude sight gags, burlesque schtick and stale Jewish jokes done at rapid-fire pace. The plot became an after-thought, working around the barrage of unsubtle humor. In targeting the classic Frankenstein' series, however, Brooks worked in reverse, wisely focusing on plot, tone and atmosphere, then complementing them with clever, carefully constructed bits.A rich staple of comedy pros from Brooks' fun factory Mel graciously did not cast himself here were employed to wring out the most laughs possible out of the fresh, inventive material. Gene Wilder plays the frizzy-haired, eruptive college professor Frederick Frankenstein pronounced FRONK-en-STEEN , grandson of the infamous scientist, who gives in to the maniacal tendencies of his mad ancestor after inheriting the late Baron's Teutonic castle. His simmer-to-boil antics have seldom been put to better use, while only pop-eyed Marty Feldman, who gets to break the fourth wall as Igor prounouced EYE-gor , the dim, oddball assistant, could milk a hump for all its worth. Kenneth Mars too gets a lot of mileage out of his one-armed, slush-mouthed inspector. In the film's most difficult role, Peter Boyle's appearance as the Monster is jarring at first, looking like a cross between Herman Munster and Uncle Fester. But he increasingly wins you over, earning even a little empathy along the way. His character is the most crucial for this parody to work right and he succeeds, figuring in a high percentage of the comedy highlights.Representing the distaff side, Madeline Kahn is one cool cucumber, stealing focus whenever she's on camera as the placid, meticulous, hopelessly stuck-up fiancee Elizabeth; Cloris Leachman sinks her teeth into the role of the grotesque Frau Blücher, whose mere mention of her name sends horses into panic; and Teri Garr is delightful as a dinghy Deutschlander who assists Frankenstein in his wild experiments and other things.An amalgamation of Universal's earliest and best Frankenstein' movies "Frankenstein," "Bride of Frankenstein" and "Son of Frankenstein," this spoof relies on close imitation and Brooks took painstaking methods to recreate the look and feel of James Whale's original sets, black-and-white photography and musical score. It pays off in spades.Nearly 30 years later, this movie still leaves me in stitches. Wilder and Garr's revolving secret door bit is still priceless, as is Cloris Leachman's ovaltine' routine and the Wilder/Boyle "Puttin' On the Ritz" tie-and-tail duet. Boyle and the unbilled Gene Hackman in the "Blind Hermit" scene ripped off from "Bride of Frankenstein" are uproarious, easily winning the award for sustained hilarity in a single sketch. Add Feldman's hump and Mars' troublesome mechanical arm and what you have is rib-tickling entertainment from start to finish. Madeline Kahn's post-coital, cigarette-smoking scene with ol zipperneck' who leaves her in a sexual snit must go down in Hollywood annals as the funniest scene ever caught on camera. Certainly Jeanette MacDonald's puristic rendition of "Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life" will never have quite the same meaning again after you've heard Madeline's spin on it. "Blazing Saddles" indeed has its insane moments but when it comes to toasting Mel Brooks in the years to come, "Young Frankenstein" should certainly stand front and center when representing this clown prince of comedy.
Mel Brooks' tribute to the Frankenstein movies of the 40s is done with such love, such skill, and such side-splitting, fall-on-the-floor hilarity, that it has rightfully become a comedy classic. I first saw it in a movie theater: I had no idea what it was, had very little knowledge of Mel Brooks at the time, and expected to be bored. Instead, I found myself shrieking aloud with laughter that became so intense, I missed many of the major lines. Hence the video.What can I say? From the wild-eyed Igor, the hunchbacked Transylvanian servant whose hump keeps changing from side to side, to the <more>
modern-day descendant of Baron von Frankenstein, determined not to follow in his great-grandfather's nefarious footsteps, to the nurse, a naif with enormous...er...chestal appendages, to the fearsome Frau Bleucher, whose mere mention causes horses in the castle's faraway stables to neigh in fear...to the scene of the monster and his creator singing and dancing in black tie to "putting on the Ritz," this movie should come with a warning: "Danger--Uncontrollable Laughter May Become Chronic."The cast is beyond superb. The late, wonderful British comedian Marty Feldman Igor , who turned his congenital wandering eyes into comedic foils, never misses a beat as second banana to Gene Wilder, who plays the distraught Dr. Frankenstein to the hilt and beyond. Cloris Leachman, who looks like a cross between a witch and a warlock, plays the feared housekeeper Frau Bleucher neighhh!!! , and a very young, beautiful, and buxom Teri Garr plays the nurse-assistant to the good doctor. Then there is the marvelous Madeline Kahn, who gave a bravura performance as the doctor's fiancee. The late comedienne's burst into operatic ecstasy during her rape by the monster is simply inspired, and is one of the comedic high points of the entire film. All of Kahn's considerable talents came into play during this movie; she was taken from us too soon.
Possibly Mel Brooks' Best Film (by ccthemovieman-1)
Over 30 years later this film still provides a ton of laughs to audiences.It's always good to see the late Marty Feldman, whose face was hysterical and perfect for this film. In fact, he, along with the camera-work, really make this film one to watch and enjoy multiple times. Teri Garr was at her best and never looked as pretty as did in here. Add in the great talents of Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Gene Hackman, Peter Boyle, Cloris Leachman, etc., and you have a memorable movie with a lot of memorable scenes.Looking at the Frankenstien "monster" in a tuxedo or sitting up in bed <more>
with a cigar reading The Wall Street Journal are just a few of the outlandish scenes, along Wilder entering the mansion commenting on the "nice knockers."Kudos, also, for Mel Brooks having the good sense to film this in black-and- white. It may have been his best film, although "Blazing Saddles" would give it a run for its money. My only complaint was Wilder's constant yelling, which becomes abrasive and can give you a headache after awhile! Still, this has to be considered one of the best "comedy classics" ever.
Much of the words I used to describe Mel Brooks' work in Blazing Saddles applies here as well.To have not one,but two masterpieces of comedy in the same year is incredible.I'm amazed at the way Brooks is able to capture the cinematography of a genre such as 30's horror films,and use it in a spoof of the genre.Sheer genius! As for casting,Marty Feldman is hysterical as Igor.Classic routines,excellent casting,and again,the cinematography make this film one of the all time great comedies.
Not Mel Brooks' best film, but pretty close (by MartinHafer)
The career of Mel Brooks is much like that of Woody Allen in that both of them did their best stuff in their earlier years when their films were just plain funny. After a few films, Allen's got too introspective and artsy and Brooks' became so juvenile and cheap that both "geniuses" became intolerable to watch to many past fans.Young Frankenstein is one of Brooks' earliest films and like THE PRODUCERS his first and best , it is so hilariously funny that I don't mind seeing them again and again. So why did I like YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, exactly? Well, the acting was <more>
superb. I particularly loved Gene Wilder particularly during his speech while holding a scalpel and his sidekick, Marty Feldman,...though Cloris Leachman was also terrific as Frau Blücher. And while the film lacked the subtlety and grace of THE PRODUCERS, it was silly and dopey but still restrained compared to later Brooks films. Plus, it had a lovely black & white look that really was a wonderful homage to the Universal monsters of the 1930s.I know this will ruffle a lot of feathers, but his equally famous BLAZING SADDLES was, for me, the beginning of the end of Brooks' genius. While SADDLES had many wonderful moments, there was absolutely no restraint and the end degenerated into a horrific and stupid mess. Like Jerry Lewis, after a while his films were practically unwatchable, as there was no one on-hand to say "enough" or "perhaps you might want to make this scene a little more subtle" or "doing a comedy about homeless people just can't work".
One of the funniest movie of all time (by jacobjohntaylor1)
This movie is very funny. The mean characters are the grand son of Doctor Frankenstein The grand son of Ygor and a monster that they created. This movie is a satire of the Frankenstein movies from the 30's and 40's. I am a big fan off these movies. And I fine this movie to be very funny. One the funniest movies I have ever seen. It got an 8 but is such a great movie that 8 is underrating it. I do not like a lot of comedy movies. And I have to say this is one of the better ones. Mel Brooks is a great director. Most film directors do not know what funny is. But he does know. Gene Wilder <more>
is great actor and writer. Mel Brooks is also and great writer. This movie is a most. If you want to laugh see this movie.
This is one of Mel Brooks/Gene Wilder's best ; plenty of humor , entertainment and amusement (by ma-cortes)
Dr. Frankenstein's Gene Wilder has stated that this is his favorite of all the films he's made grandson, after years of living down the family reputation, inherits granddad's castle and repeats the experiments carried out many years ago . He says goodbye his pretty girlfriend Elizabeth Madeline Kahn and travels Transylvania . In the castle he finds a funny hunchback called Igor Marty Feldman , a gorgeous lab assistant Teri Garr named Inga and the old housekeeper, Frau Blucher Cloris Leachman . Later on , he successfully reanimates a body Peter Boyle which soon flees and <more>
creates wreak havoc . Hilarious Mel Brooks/Gene Wilder comedy filled with horror satire , amusing events , nice settings and lots of laughters . This spoof of the old Universal terror movies is fun from start to finish . The original cut of the movie was almost twice as long as the final cut, and it was considered by all involved to be an abysmal failure , it was only after a marathon cutting session that they produced the final cut of the film, which both Gene Wilder and Mel Brooks considered to be far superior to the original product ; at one point they noted that for every joke that worked, there were three that fell flat , so they went in and trimmed all the jokes that didn't work. Enjoyable support cast such as Madeline Kahn as Elizabeth , Cloris Leachman as Frau Blücher , Kenneth Mars as Inspector Kemp and brief acting by John Carradine , Leon Askin played a lawyer but was cut out , final film of Oscar Beregi Jr and of Richard Haydn , but most of his role was deleted from the final print . And uncredited Gene Hackman as the Blind Man, in fact parting line "I was gonna make espresso" was not in the script, but was ad-libbed by the same Gene Hackman during shooting . When Mel Brooks found that Ken Strickfaden, who had made the elaborate electrical machinery for the lab sequences in the Universal Frankenstein films, was still alive in the Los Angeles area. He visited Strickfaden and found that Strickfaden had saved all the equipment and had it stored in his garage. Brooks made a deal to rent the equipment for his film and gave Strickfaden the screen credit he'd deserved, but hadn't gotten, for the original films. Evocative as well as luxurious cinematography in white and black by magnificent director of photography Gerald Hirschfeld . Lively and agreeable musical score by John Morris , Mel Brooks's usual . Excellent makeup by artist Ed Butterworth, being helped by the classic William Tuttle as makeup creator , as just like in the original Frankenstein 1931 , greenish face makeup was used on the monster to make his features more prominent . Perfect sets and impressive production design , in fact he electrical apparatus used in the movie was basically the same as the equipment used Frankenstein 1931 , including many of the same props and lab equipment . The motion picture was stunningly directed by Mel Brooks Blazing saddles , High anxiety , Twelve chairs , The producers , Spaceballs , History of the world . It was voted this movie as one of "The 50 Greatest Comedies Of All Time" in 2006 and at the 1975 Golden Globe Awards, Cloris Leachman was nominated for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy/Musical, while Madeline Kahn was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for their work in this movie.
Fantastic. One of the funniest movies ever made. (by ametaphysicalshark)
Although Blazing Saddles might be the most famous Mel Brooks film, this is really where he achieves a pinnacle in comedy. It isn't quite the funniest movie ever made, but it's damn close. The comedy is laugh out loud, over the top hilarious, but it never resorts to cheap slapstick. As a matter of fact, if you removed a couple of scenes and turned off the volume, this could pass for a real Frankenstein movie. That's how well the satire is done.Mel Brooks does a great directing job, but the film belongs to his cast. I can't think of any comedy with a finer cast than this one, in <more>
particular Gene Wilder as Dr. Frederick Frankenstein. Wilder was excellent in the Producers and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, but this is the high point of his career. He delivers one of the finest and most memorable comedic performances in history. His performance actually works as a strong 40's or 50's style dramatic performance as well as a comedic performance. Even though he doesn't quite beat Wilder, Marty Feldman is absolutely terrific in his role as the hunchback Igor. I would be unfair to disregard Madeline Kahn as Dr. Frankenstein's fiancée, or Teri Garr's sublime portrayal of the typical blond bombshell typecast. Peter Boyle is also very good as the Monster.The script is very good, but it's the electrifying chemistry within the cast that makes this so funny. Truly one of the finest comedies, and films ever made.
Creating a funny and light-headed comedy is one thing...but producing an effective parody might as well be the hardest thing to achieve in cinema. Because you need to have the talent to tell an already famous story in a tolerable and comic way. And, above all, you should always show respect for the original movie or classic story it is based on. And that's why most movies in this subgenre of cinema are a failure and the early movies of Mel Brooks are a triumph...Young Frankenstein is a series of brilliant scenes and hilarious highlights but the basic plot of Frankenstein is never mocked!! <more>
Thanks to Brooks ' writing talent and the terrific acting performances of the entire cast, Young Frankenstein is a magnificent cinema experience to observe. Brooks even manages to keep the horrific atmosphere in his movie and that's an achievement to itself. As mentioned before, the cast of Young Frankenstein couldn't be better. Gene Wilder is delicious as the baron but the show is obviously stolen by Marty Feldman as Igor...His facial expressions and small inside jokes are the absolute highlights. Acting legend Gene Hackman plays the role of the blind man. The classic sequence in which he invites the monster to his house stands as one of the funniest ones in modern cinema...in my humble opinion, at least. When talking about nowadays crappy movies in the genre like the Scary Movies for example , I think it's safe to say that the genre of decent "spoofs" is dead and buried. Young and untalented directors turned it into a vulgar and uninspired genre. If you're looking for the titles that are worth the effort, you can't go wrong with the earlier work of Mel Brooks. Young Frankenstein of course, but also Blazing Saddles, High Anxiety and Silent Movie...
