Awesome Movie – Young Frankenstein

I have totally been slacking lately, I admit it.  so hopefully this post is awesome enough to make up for it.  This is a Halloween tradition for me.  Every year at least since I have been married (which is 12 years if you have been paying attention) I have watched this film:

It is a great parody of the Boris Karloff Frankenstein film.  a lot of the thematic elements from that film are incorporated into it.  However it is the great cast that makes this movie, Gene Wilder, Marty Feldman, Teri Garr, Peter Boyle Cloris Leachman, Madeline Kahn, and Mel Brooks.  For my money this is Mel Brooks best film.  I think this year my kids are old enough to watch it with me, I am very excited to include them in this tradition.  If you do watch it this year I would love to hear what you think!

P.S. as an interesting bit of Trivia this is where the title for Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way” comes from.
