Timeless Classics: Robin Hood Men In Tights

The second-to-last film directed by Mel Brooks, Robin Hood: Men In Tights (1993) became a classic in its own right, just like Young Frankenstein (1974), Blazing Saddles (1974) and Spaceballs (1987) have.

The point is the film satirizes racism during the New Hollywood era and the world of the old west. Bart (Cleavon Little) … Continue reading Timeless Classics: Blazing Saddles

Timeless Classics: Young Frankenstein

Timeless Classics: Young Frankenstein

Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder made the iconic 1974 comedy-horror film known as Young Frankenstein (1974), or as some say "Young Fron-kun-steen". A spoof of the Mary Shelley book of the same name, Victor Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) and Igor (Marty Feldman) wanted to create life from dead tissue and an "abby-normal" brain as a monster … Continue reading Timeless Classics: Young Frankenstein
