Katy and Eric

These jerks finally got hitched!


Directed by Mel Brooks

Written by Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder

Starring Gene Wilder, Marty Feldman, Teri Garr, Peter Boyle

KATY SAYS: I first saw this movie in junior high school. We were doing a unit on Frankenstein and had to watch multiple different versions of the story put to screen. I didn’t appreciate it then, but I was young and had no taste. It’s an, endlessly quotable classic comedy with masterful performances from Gene Wilder and Teri Garr. One of Mel Brooks best.

My favorite Mel Brooks film. Nobody does sheer panic like Gene Wilder. It’s a beautiful and hilarious love letter to the Universal monster movies of old. What I didn’t know until much later, is that a great deal of the movie is a remake of 1939’s “Son of Frankenstein,” with whole scenes being lifted and rewritten by Brooks and Wilder.
Bonus: Madeline Kahn!
