Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (Gene Wilder): "For the experiment to be a success, all of the body parts must be enlarged." // Inga (Teri Garr): "He vould have an enormous schwanzstucker." // Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: "That goes without saying." -- from Young Frankenstein (1974) directed by Mel Brooks
Young Frankenstein? Film Noir? Yes, its probably one of the funniest films ever made. I'd love to have been a fly on the wall to watch these actors cracking up between takes. While the genre doesn't really include comedies this film is a loving noir tribute to the original Frankenstein movies. The studio wanted Mel Brooks to do it in color. He refused and threatened to walk.
