Young Frankenstein
A finely tuned parody of the old Frankenstein movies, in which Wilder returns to the old country to clear his family name. He finds his late grandfather's step-by-step manual explaining how to bring a corpse to life. With Igor, his hunchbacked assistant, and the curvaceous Inga, Dr. Frankenstein creates a monster who only wants to be loved.

Black & white movie. Not one of of Mel's & Gene's better movies.
Some of the lines were very good.

Tied with "Blazing Saddles" as Brooks's best and funniest film. This is certainly his best looking film and it looks fabulous on blu-ray. Unlike the contemporary parody movies ("Date Movie," "Epic Movie," "Movie Movie"), Brooks and his team understand and appreciate their source material, so this is just as much homage to old Universal horror movies, esp. the first three "Frankenstein films, as it is mockery. Great cast. Oh, "blucher," contrary to popular belief, does not mean glue in German.

"Blucher" (as in Frau Blucher) is actually German for "glue", thus the horses' reaction.

Great family movie in black and white from the great film producer and actor Mel Brooks.

My kids love this movie, good family fun.
Beware some minor sexual references and double entendres, but young kids won't get it, and older kids will laugh heartly once they get it.
So no harm done, just laughs.

Fron-kon-steen: "Now that brain that you gave me. Was it Hans Delbruk's?" Eyegor: "No." Fron-kon-steen: "Ahh. Would you mind telling me whose brain I did put in?" Eye-gor: "And you won't be angry?" Fron-kon-steen: "I will not be angry." Eye-gor: "Abby...someone." Fron-kon-steen: "Abby someone. Abby who??" Eye-gor: "Abby...normal." Fron-kon-steen: "Abby normal." Eye-gor: "I'm almost sure that was the name." Fron-kon-steen: (chuckles) "Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a 7-&-a-half-foot long, 54-inch wide...(begins strangling Eye-gor) GORILLA?????? Is that what you're telling me?????"
