|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Young Frankenstein|
|Affectionate and loving parody (and actual sequel) part Bride of Frankenstein, part Son of Frankenstein. They rebuilt the Creature and finally got it right. Baron Frankenstein finally accepts the responsibility that comes with a newborn creature, teaches it, and loves it.
You get the seeking of body parts, the creation, the blind hermit, the escape and capture and ultimately a happy resolution.
This is the best of Mel Brooks films (second probably being "The Producers"), and probably the funniest. Brooks & Wilder are both geniuses!!!
With Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Cloris Leachman, Terri Garr, Marty Feldman, and Gene Hackman. 1974.
