Young neurosurgeon (Wilder) is informed that he inherited the castle of his grandfather, the infamous Dr. Frankenstein. Upon arrival, he is amused by the notes of his grandfather’s reanimation experiment. Eventually, he decides to test them.
Made with obvious affection for the original, Young Frankenstein is a riotously silly spoof featuring a fantastic performance by Gene Wilder.
