Our Directors Series look at the films of Mel Brooks continues May 17 and 18 with YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN!

What do you do when you want to be celebrated as a respected scientist, but your grandfather was one of the most notorious mad scientists in history?  If you’re medical lecturer Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (Gene Wilder), you start by changing the pronunciation of your last name, and hope for the best.  But what happens when you inherit your infamous grandfather’s estate in Transylvania, and stumble upon his private library outlining his various revolutionary experiments? With the help of servants Igor (Marty Feldman), Inga (Teri Garr), and the fearsome Frau Blücher (Cloris Leachman), Frederick creates his own living monster (Peter Boyle), a lumbering oaf who is soon introduced to fire, hot soup, and song numbers.   …And that’s before the arrival of the doctor’s fiancée, Elizabeth (Madeline Kahn).
