A 1974 American horror comedy film directed by Mel Brooks and starring Gene Wilder as the title character, a descendant of the infamous Dr. Victor Frankenstein. The supporting cast includes Teri Garr, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman, Peter Boyle, Madeline Kahn, Kenneth Mars, Richard Haydn, and Gene Hackman. The screenplay was written by Wilder and Brooks. The film is an affectionate parody of the classic horror film genre; in particular the various film adaptations of Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein produced by Universal in the 1930s. It won Hugo and Nebula Awards, 5 Saturn Awards and a Golden Screen Award. A young neurosurgeon inherits the castle of his grandfather, the famous Dr. Victor von Frankenstein. Picked up at the train station by Igor, Victor meets his lab assistant Inga on the way to the castle and finally meets the old housekeeper, Frau Blücher. Young Frankenstein believes that the work of his grandfather is only crap, but when he discovers the book where the mad doctor described his reanimation experiment, he suddenly changes his mind.
Trivia: The shifting hump on Igor's back was an ad-libbed gag of Marty Feldman's. He had surreptitiously been shifting the hump back and forth for several days when cast members finally noticed. It was then added to the script.
