favorite Halloween movie is Young Frankenstein. It's a comedy
instead of a thriller or horror film, but I don't care. It's just
hysterical, no matter how many times or what time of year I see it.
Mel Brooks' 1974
black and white film, co-written by Gene Wilder, is the perfect
parody of the old Universal Studios horror classics.
Marty Feldman, Terri Garr, Madeline Kahn, Cloris Leachman, Kenneth
Mars, Gene Hackman, and Peter Boyle are so funny and perfectly cast in their roles. The
“walk this way” routine and other gags are timeless, flowing
smoothly from scene to scene.
are few of my favorite punch lines and quotes:
you like a roll in ze hay? Roll, roll, roll in ze hay”
will you give me a hand with the bags?
take the blonde, and I'll take the one in the turban.”
ze candle... *back*!”
vould have an enormous schwanzstucker.”
sweet mystery of life, at last I've found you.”
you haven't seen Young Frankenstein in a while, be sure to watch this
week with a big bowl of popcorn. Have a safe and happy Halloween!
