Mel Brooks followed his western parody hit Blazing Saddles with this beautiful black-and-white run up of 1930s horror flicks. In this 1974 release, Gene Wilder as Dr. Frederick Frankenstein is determined to put his family’s reputation behind him and insists his name be pronounced "Fronckensteen," but he soon succumbs to temptation. The result, ultimately, is his creation of a soft-shoe stepping Frankenstein’s monster played by Peter Boyle. Madeline Khan as Dr. Frankenstein’s wife, Teri Garr as his voluptuous assistant and Marty Feldman as his shuffling, bug-eyed assistant add to the cast.
