Oh, I saw "Frankenstein" in 1931 and "Bride of Frankenstein" and many other films of the series up to "Abbott and Costello...", in which monster movies are ridiculed in order to forget. But the monster does not will be able to bury nothing — it from film the film is enlivened and then catch. So in reality — the story of "unreal man" was buried and dug up many times. After a cheap film from "hammer production" followed this a parody of Mel Brooks. But the monster then back to other tapes, up to "Vani Helsing" in 2004. I will note that Brooks not were going to destroy creation — like a warning to other creators he made monster man, noting that another "Homo sapiens" is not present, but do not just grab the torches and pitchforks.

Return to the origins of the genre performed perfectly. Titles in the beginning of the film where the names are engraved in Gothic letters, black-and-white film, slowly approaching the castle. A little later you will be a full moon, and storm fun with a secret door, and covered in cobwebs lab, and digging up the dead with the subsequent recovery — all the trappings of "Frankenstein". Here include the standard chase with dogs, a couple "beauty and the beast", yeah and much more. In short, is not another worst horror story of the series. But it's Mel Brooks. Therefore, the inevitable jokes. Not all of them transferred successfully, but like you, for example, the "new York — Transylvania"? Personally, I didn't realize with the second viewing.

Actors, verified by Mel Brooks (some repeatedly) and beginners look great in black and white tape. gene Wilder plays the "poor half-mad genius," who first denied the ideas of his grandfather, and then I read it it was filled. Please note how changes in this character — Wilder well able to pass this a piece of madness. Madeline Kahn that not surprisingly, as a beautiful lady, following all the fashion trends. With the other hand Marty Feldman , which nature has given comic appearance in the role Agora. It is a pity that Mel Brooks not had something to use this actor — Feldman not have become 84 and he was sick a long time. Cloris lichman played an ambiguous Frau Blucher, on the name which react violently the horse. Frankly, from her appearance in horror may come and man of the screen. Kenneth Mars appeared in the role of the one-armed inspector (was a character in one sequels "Frankestein"), Terry Garr  — assistant Inga, not disappointed in the genius of the doctor. Well, Peter Boyle portrayed the monster under the end of the film, which won the right to vote. Very accurately convey the original style of "walking-Moo" Boris Karloff.

From this film you can learn how it is necessary to gradually educate the monster, talking with him tete-a-tete, teaching tap dance. Here listen to Mel Brooks depicts the howling werewolf. You can get a lot of pleasure and not a drop of horror at this. In General, if you will come across this film should take. Safe vain not will.

And always, Mel Brooks paid tribute to the origins of cinema in his paintings. At this time he was subjected to a respectful parody of the famous movies about a terrible Frankenstein, played by Boris Karloff.

A young doctor — a descendant of the mysterious family of Frankensteins, is sent at the request of one of the influential people terrifying Transylvania to come to a ancestor. Frederick — young Frankenstein, at first, not want to take my grandfather's flaws, but then repeats already your monster.

Needless to say, Brooks isn't have made an absolute remake of the film. Yes! The shooting took place in the same castle was filmed in 1931. Yes! Brooks and gene Wilder (everything else played Frederick) wrote the script adaptation, guided by the original Mary Shelli about the famous monster. Yeah and the moment of Frederick and Elizabeth from perrona like a shot from "Casablanca" (only there is the same situation was ILSA and Rick). However, it should be noted and differences. First, we see the clothes of the modern age (70-ies), and costumes (hats and bonnets) of the sample in the 40s, and something like the national Transylvanian outfits. Maybe this model mix the author wanted to show the connection between the incorruptibility of the film version about Frankenstein. Second, in contrast Thriller Karloff, Mel Brooks shows in his picture cheerful ending, like — "every man for woman."

Peter Boyle in the role of the monster, Madeline Kahn as extravagant bride of Frederick, Teri Garr in the role of miniature assistant of Dr. and Cloris Leachmen in the role of the "concrete" Madame Blucher — look over the back of Wilder did not worse than the. Well as a theme song "Transylvanian Lullaby" in film — just great (... maybe its original Franz Liszt?!) and sad (despite the future comic film).

And the poster for the movie released under the example of "Golden age" of Hollywood.

- Elevate me.
- Now? Right here?
- Raise the platform, please!
- Oh, the platform!

This is kinopremii had known better times. What modern parody boasts Oscar nomination for the best adapted screenplay? Perhaps that no such is not expected. Mel Brooks — the most talented comedians of his time, not was just making fun of private movies and genre clichés, and created an independent, solid works, which felt the love of the object of the parody. It now scoff at the blockbusters, many of whom are in itself is not far removed from the definition of Comedy in its secondary and slowness. Gags Brooks intelligent, relevant and are essential attributes of the film.

- Wait Master, it might be dangerous... you go first.

Characters appearing in"Young Frankenstein" are so thoughtfully written that it's amazing how it managed to the film is about which is slightly more than the standard hour and a half. Dr. Frankenstein not recognize the pseudo-scientific methods in film comes in a truly orgasmic ecstasy after reading the diaries of his grandfather, "How can I did" and at the beginning of the experiment. Igor, or as he calls himself Igor — clumsy crooks with the dancing eyes, the silly assistant doctors, the root cause of all of the events in film — because he brought the doctor, the brain does not the great scientist, as a Mr. Abby Normal. Inga — big-breasted assistant doctor, nothing understanding of scientific research, but is able to guide the great practice on the path of his love pleasures and childlike. Frau Blucher — the mistress of the castle, from each pronunciation of the name which even the horses at the yard get up on its hind legs and start laughing hysterically. Elizabeth — bride-to-be doctor, most caring manicure and hairstyle, whose little voice explodes audio series again orgasmic singing in the scenes Frankenstein. Well and, of course, the guest of honor — polymaster — half of the brain of a moron and the body of a giant, who just need love and understanding. The episode with the dance the doctor and his creation on the stage imperishable Puttin" on the Ritz — just a classic Comedy sketch. To refrain from laughter is impossible, especially when the sing starts moaning Frankenstein. It is not all characters from which even the secondary was marked by a number of fun little jokes and created images.

Russian translation of like it often happens in case smart comedies not can jokes of the film. But when it comes to play on words, then the great and mighty simply powerless.

Since 2003, this masterpiece is the list of the National register of USA movies, along with the Godfather II, published in the same year.
