Penny Thoughts ‘13—Young Frankenstein (1974) ****

PG, 106 min.
Director: Mel Brooks
Writers: Gene Wilder, Mel Brooks, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (novel “Frankenstein”)
Starring: Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, Teri Garr, Cloris Leachman, Kenneth Mars, Gene Hackman

Now, my recent screening of Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein” wasn’t exactly witnessed under ideal conditions. It was queued up for our family’s New Year’s Eve festivities. While much of the family enjoys playing cards all night, I’m not one for cards much. So I generally draw kids watch. Which gave me a good amount of time to watch most of the movie, since most of the kids are at ages where they watch themselves, but there were some incidents that pulled me away. So I think any in depth analysis should really wait for a proper screening. This time all I have to say is…

“Frau Blücher!”
