"Young Frankenstein", directed Mel Brooks

Movie, 1974

Broad affectionate parody of Universal Horror films, with silly gags which feel both of their time and still worthy of a good chuckle, as Wilder, Feldman and co go through their paces. This is also a terrific looking film, wonderfully recreating the atmosphere of the setting of the original movies, nowhere more so than in the village and villager scenes, most ably led by the mechanically challenged Chief of Police. Lovers of the source films may have an advantage watching this and getting the jokes, but there’s enough to keep all amused.
