Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) is a neurosurgeon who has spent years trying to live down the family reputation. When he inherits his notorious grandfather's castle in Transylvania he reluctantly moves in — and is soon inspired to continue his experiments in reanimating the dead. Aided by a voluptuous assistant, Inga (Teri Garr), the hunchback Igor (Marty Feldman) and the terrifying housekeeper Frau Blücher (Cloris Leachman), Frankenstein creates a new monster (Peter Boyle) who is just as misunderstood as the first. Madeline Kahn, Kenneth Mars and an uncredited Gene Hackman costar in one of Mel Brooks' best films, with an Oscar-nominated screenplay cowritten by Brooks and Wilder. A loving spoof of the classic horror genre, Young Frankenstein features the same set, props and laboratory equipment as the original 1931 film, Frankenstein.
