This is HOT
For those of you who know me, you know I am a huge Mel Brooks fan. I can watch his movies over and over. My favorite Mel Brooks movie is History of the World Part 1 and my second favorite is:
The scariest comedy of all time gets resurrected as Young Frankenstein: 40th Anniversary arrives on Blu-ray September 9 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Comedy icons Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman, Teri Garr and Madeline Kahn star in Mel Brooks’ brilliantly outrageous riff on Mary Shelley’s classic story of Frankenstein. After inheriting his grandfather’s castle in Transylvania, young Dr. Frankenstein (Wilder) follows in his ancestor’s freaky footsteps as he sets out to reanimate a dead body in Brooks’ “funniest, most cohesive comedy to date.” (The New York Times).
Young Frankenstein was nominated for two Academy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards. More than 40 years later, the film has stood the test of time, ranking at lucky number 13 on the American Film Institute’s list of the top 100 funniest films.
In celebration of the 40th anniversary, fans of Young Frankenstein can also enter themselves for a chance to win an autographed set photo from the man himself, Mel Brooks! Beginning on September 1, fans can go to YoungFrankSweeps.com for all the rules and a chance to win.
