We’re electrifying the ab(by)- normal and Putting on the Ritz with this unbelievably hilarious spoof on the classic tale of reanimation and misunderstanding. Gene Wilder plays the neurosurgeon descendent of the mythical Dr. Frankenstein. After stumbling on his original plans, the young Dr. Frankenstein (pronounced fronkenshteen) attempts to play God once again and bring a corpse back from the dead. With some of the funniest lines in cinema history and brilliant performances from Wilder, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman and Teri Garr, Young Frankenstein remains one of Mel Brooks’ greatest triumphs.
