Young Frankenstein


3:00pm Sunday, July 23

Mel Brooks’s hilarious and affectionate send-up of the classic black-and-white monster movies of the 1930s, came out the same year as Blazing Saddles, his also-hilarious and just-as-affectionate satire of classic movie Westerns. In a single year, he both cemented his place as one of the greatest comedy directors in history, and probably precluded a devastating influx of copycat film-genre parodies — because who could hope to be as successful or prolific as the master himself? Young Frankenstein retells the story of a differently-pronounced Dr. Frankenstein (the incomparable Gene Wilder) and his henchmen and hangers-on (Teri Garr, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman) as he creates life (Peter Boyle plays the monster with goofy innocence) and then promptly loses control of it, to the dismay of nearby villagers. In retrospect a surprisingly faithful rendition of the Boris Karloff Frankenstein from 1931, you still shouldn’t come in expecting a serious or … wait, have you never seen it? What are you waiting for? Stop reading this immediately, and go buy as many tickets as you can responsibly afford.

2h 20m/Rated PG/Comedy

Immediately after the film, Tampa Bay Times film critic Steve Persall will lead a short discussion of Young Frankenstein and an audience Q&A. The session is included with film admission.
