Young Frankenstein

01/01/1974 (Aprox)


Indeed, most Frankenstein pictures after Whale’s Bride of Frankenstein (1935) replace the original theme of the creation of life with a scenario about brain transplantation and its consequences. The shift begins with Ghost of Frankenstein (1942) and persists across genres, from gore to mild porn, to Mel Brooks’s satirical Young Frankenstein (1974) and beyond (Vidal 2016).
