"Young Frankenstein" Spoof Yet Belonging (Happy Birthday Gene Wilder!)



My dad knew him as the weird guy hanging around with Richard Pryor in "Stir Crazy." I knew him as Willy Wonka as a kid in the magical "Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory." They're still trying to bring back that franchise with casting rumors landing on everyone from Ryan Gosling to Donald Glover (sorry, Mr. Wilder OWNS that part). But one classic that brings the world of comedy and classic horror together and holds a special place in my heart is the Mel Brooks comedy horror "Young Frankenstein."
A film that parodies the Universal Monsters era yet has the look and feel of a Universal horror movie. Much like "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein," it's a great comedic take on the genre, yet also BELONGS to the genre. And the master Gene Wilder is as manic and hilarious as any film you'll ever see him in.
It's also fun to see outtakes of the cast, as they seem to be having the time of their lives. Mel Brooks, not so much. :D
Happy birthday Gene Wilder!
