EP. 404.2 — Young Frankenstein

Paul & Amy put on the Ritz with 1974’s Mel Brooks monster movie parody Young Frankenstein! They ask what makes this the most beautiful of Brooks’ films, praise the colorful supporting cast from Marty Feldman to Teri Garr, and chart the increasingly frenzied performance of star Gene Wilder. Plus: That’s where “Walk This Way” came from?


Next week, Paul & Amy continue their Mel Brooks discussion with Blazing Saddles!
