Young Frankenstein: a great movie for kids and adults alike! Released in 1974, this is a black and white film (a rarity at that time) directed by Mel Brooks starring Gene Wilder. With a budget of $2.78 million, it racked up $86.2 million at the box offices.
The movie is about Frederick Frankenstein who is a teacher at an American medical school who inherits his great-grandfather’s estate in Transylvania. He travels there to inspect the place and meets several other characters who make this movie hilarious: Igor, Inga, & Frau Blücher (insert horses here). You’ll have to watch the movie to get that joke!
Frederick discovers his great grandfather’s lab where he used to reanimate corpses and decides to give it a try for himself. It’s alive! IT’S ALIVE!
I love this movie because they are SEVERAL great quotes that are always funny to me. It’s clean enough for kids to watch, but some adult humor that only the grown ups would understand. Interesting fact, they used the same props from the 1931 Frankenstein film got this movie! Cool. Also, Gene Wilder has said this was his favorite movie he’s worked on. So give it a try, won’t you?
