YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN: Director Mel Brooks’ hilariously abby-normal homage to 1930s monster movies – one of the strangest, funniest, most brilliantly conceived comedies since the heyday of the Marx Bros. Gene Wilder (who co-wrote the script) stars as Dr. Frankenstein (“That’s Frahnk-en-steen”), grandson of the famed mad scientist, struggling to breathe life into tap-dancing monster Peter Boyle with demented help from hunchback assistant Marty Feldman, lusty Teri Garr, neurotic girlfriend Madeline Kahn and Frau Blucher herself, Cloris Leachman.
BLAZING SADDLES: Mel Brooks’ third film as director took his politically incorrect humor (with a screenplay co-written by Richard Pryor) to new heights of hilarity. A corrupt politician appoints a black sheriff to cause havoc in a Western town, but is surprised when the new lawman (Cleavon Little) becomes a force to be reckoned with. With Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn and Harvey Korman.
