Young Frankenstein (1974)



The grandson of the infamous Dr. Victor Frankenstein discovers a journal with the details of his grandfather's work and recreates the experiment, giving new life to a formerly lifeless being.


A classic comedic gem! Puttin' on the Ritz! Maybe it was intentional to try to be funny, maybe it was an oversight, maybe they thought it worked better, I don't know, but the real story of Frankenstein takes place in Geneva, Switzerland but this movie takes place in Transylvania which is Dracula's home. What's up with that? Also, if they were following the real story at all, which they probably weren't, Dr. Frankenstein didn't even have children so the probability that he would've had grandchildren is extremely unlikely, but I'm over analyzing; they obviously didn't pay any attention to the real story because it's just a silly comedy, why would they need to? Don't get me wrong though, I really enjoy this movie as the comedic treasure it is.
