    I understand that Mary Shelley's Frankenstein was way before the Knoxville connection - I was just tryin' to tell ya that Knoxville has a connection with Frankenstein. I didn't read the book I mentioned, I didn't do research on Mary Shelley; I just wanted to give you a little fun fact regarding where I live. :)

      For another great Gene Wilder movie, check out Silver Streak. Not as slapstick as the Mel Brooks movies he was in, but still a great comedy and just great classic. He stars alongside Richard Pryor, so its just two comedy giants!

    There is a reason why Mel Brooks was not in the film.... Gene Wilder was performing in Blazing Saddles. He told Mel Brooks about the Young Frankenstein screenplay he was working upon. Wilder wanted Brooks to direct the film. The two of them worked on the finished screenplay together. Wilder welcomed Brooks idea & direction but he made it clear he (Wilder) would be the on screen talent. In the end they shared the Academy Award for best adapted screenplay.

    For an amazing long time grave robbing happened frequently to provide fresh corpses for Medical Schools. Many scandals. In 1828 Edinburg, Scotland there was two guys who worked as “resurrection men”.....they exhumed the dead illegally. Burke & Hare found even doing that they could not provide enough corpses. Over a period of time those two killed at least 16 people to “fulfill” demand. After Burke was hung his body was given to the Edinburg Medical School. His skeleton is still displayed there

    Sorry, but I find your link between Mary Shelly & Knoxville dubious at best. When she wrote her novel in a rented villa in Switzerland there had been a competition with Lord Byron & Percy Shelly to write a ghost story. Her tale struck a literary nerve and had lingered ever since.

    The reason the horses neigh was because the subtle “secret” that makes this “in-joke” funny: “Blücher” is the German (or Yiddish) word for “glue,” and so the horses react in distress whenever they hear the name (because glue is made from horses, ya know):

    Great vid as usual. My favorite Mel Brooks movie is High Anxiety. Harvey Korman is the one to watch in this film. It's a spoof on Hitchcock movies. Talkin' bout Gene Wilder, you should check out some of his movies with Richard Pryer like Stir Crazy, See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Silver Streak. You should also check out the Pink Panther movies with Peter Sellers and anything else with him in it. He was a comedic genius, like The Party or Being There being popular movies.

    If I remember correctly there are a number of interesting things with this movie... 1. Mel was only in it as the cat struck by the dart (it is an improv too; Gene didn't know he was going to make the cat sound off camera) 2. The equipment in the lab is actually the identical set pieces from the movie they are parodying, the studio still had the pieces sitting around and 3. Mel had to fight REALLY HARD with the studio to be allowed to film it in black and white.

    Sorry to disagree with you, at least in part. Mary Shelley did indeed find part of her inspiration to write the seminal work (Frankenstein) from galvanism but this phenomena of electrifying corpses to elicit autonomic responses had gripped much of the Western world in the early 19th century. Doubtless she and Byron had spent many nights speculating on the stories of this fashionable phantasmagorical phenomenon in their time together in Geneva. Alas, the fact remains also that the novel was published in 1818, a full 2 years before the Knoxville "Frankenstein" set the Americas' elite atwittter Last, the person of Dr. Stephen Foster was referred to in his time as Dr. Frankenstein, a sure sign of the popularity of the book that preceded and inspired his acts.

    You should watch "To Be or Not To Be". It's a Mel Brooks remake of a Jack Benny movie. It's about a group of actors in Warsaw after the Nazis took over, and they're trying to appease the Germans while at the same time trying to fight the Nazis in their own way. It's a little more serious than his usual stuff, but one of Brooks's best. It costars Mel's wife, Anne Bancroft, as his character's wife, whom he suspects is having an affair with a young pilot. Or you could watch the Jack Benny original. Another Jack Benny movie that I recommend is "The Horn Blows At Midnight", about a trumpet player in an orchestra who becomes involved in God's plan to destroy the world when his horn blows... at midnight.

    I think I read somewhere that "blucher" means "glue" in German. That's why the horses go crazy everytime someone says Frau Blucher's name. Also, the wolf howl heard before they reached the castle was made by Mel Brooks.

    Frau Blücher is named after Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher, the Prussian field marshall who rode to the Duke of Wellington's defence against Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. Hearing his name probably stirs the horses' ancestral memory.

    The exchange at the Transylvania train station is a homage to a 1940's jazz piece call Pennsylvania 6-5000. "Pardon me boy, is this the Pennsylvania station? Yes sir! Track 29! Boy you can give me a shine." (shoe shine). Mell Brooks is a drummer as well as a movie maker so put in a joke for musicians and music enthusiasts. Also the bit after the "call it a hunch" joke "budum-shi" a drum riff. There is of course the song sung by the wonderful and unfortunately late Marty Feldman (the guy with the eyes) "I aint got nobody" also jazz.

    I highly recommend checking out the Producers, the original with Gene Wilder... although the musical remake is good too, just not as good. His Robin Hood was also good. Dracula Dead and Loving It... eh, it's not awful. It just feels like an amateur trying to make a Mel Brooks movie rather than an actual Mel Brooks movie.
