(ϟ) Just a Regular Rocky Horror Fan

Hey there! / Sarah / 21 years old / UK.

If you haven't already noticed by the title of this blog. This is an outlet for me to place my most likely, unhealthy addiction to Rocky Horror, amongst other things. I love the show, film, basically everything about it as most fans do. I believe that Rocky Horror has a mind compulsion effect, once you've watched it once thats it, it sucks you into it's time warp. :) Updated : Other loves you will find on my blog are; Madeline Kahn, Carol Burnett, Mel Brooks, Gilda Radner, Barbra Streisand, Musicals and Old Hollywood movies.

I grow weary of this world! When shall we return to Transylvania, huh?

The movie parody has been a staple of Hollywood comedies in the last few decades, but few have combined razor-sharp wit with genuine affection as effectively as Mel Brooks’s 1974 homage to the Golden Age of monster movies. Following directly on the heels of his blockbuster Western spoof Blazing Saddles, Brooks teamed with its star, Gene Wilder, on a screenplay that would earn them an Oscar nomination. Wilder stars as the arrogant Frankenstein heir who travels to the ancestral castle, only to find himself reviving his grandfather’s work – and a brand-new creature.

The irreplaceable comic cast includes Peter Boyle as the zipper-necked monster, Madeline Kahn as the uptight fiancée (“No tongues!”), Marty Feldman as the wisecracking “Eye-gore,” Cloris Leachman as the intimidating Frau Blücher, Teri Garr as the lascivious Inga, Kenneth Mars as one-armed Inspector Kemp, and none other than Gene Hackman as the blind hermit. The combination of   Gerald Hirschfeld’s black-and-white cinematography, Dale Hennesy’s production design (which included Kenneth Strickfaden’s electrical equipment from the original ’30s Frankensteinfilms) and John Morris’s emotional score help make Young Frankenstein one of the most technically accomplished spoofs ever filmed. Mel Brooks himself will join us to celebrate this classic’s 40th anniversary.

1974, 107 minutes, black and white, DCP | Directed by Mel Brooks; written by Gene Wilder and Mel Brooks, based on the novel Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley; with Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, Madeline Kahn, Cloris Leachman, Teri Garr, Kenneth Mars.
