Wilder is Frederick Frankenstein ("That's ''Fronkensteen!''"), grandson of the infamous mad scientist, who is determined to distance himself from the family legacy. When he inherits the family estate in Transylvania, he goes to inspect the property, where he encounters a household staff including the hunchbacked servant Igor (Creator/MartyFeldman) who insists on having his name pronounced "Eye-gor", nubile assistant Inga (Teri Garr), and mirthless housekeeper Frau Blücher (*WHINNY*) (Cloris Leachman). Discovering his grandfather's laboratory and private journals, Frederick becomes similarly obsessed with the idea of re-animating the dead, and with Igor's assistance steals the corpse of a recently-hanged criminal; he then assigns Igor with stealing the preserved brain of "scientist and saint" Hans Delbrück, but an accident leads to the brain's destruction and forces Igor to substitute an abnormal brain without Frederick's knowledge. The creature (Peter Boyle) is animated and proves to be uncontrollably violent, and then Frau Blücher, (*WHINNY*) who was Victor Frankenstein's lover, sets him free...

Added DiffLines:

* BluffingTheAuthorities: There's a scene where a cop happens upon Dr Frankenstein and Igor in the middle of grave robbing. They cover up the bodies in their cart, but one arm sticks out awkwardly, so Frankenstein has to lean against the cart just right to convince the cop it's ''his'' arm.

* TheMadnessPlace: Frederick enters this state after reading Victor's instructive book, and while creating his monster, though it fizzles out after the experiment seems to fail. A deleted scene shows it can be induced by the [[{{Leitmotif}} family lullaby]].

Creator/MelBrooks and GeneWilder's [[AffectionateParody loving parody]] of the classic Franchise/UniversalHorror films of the [[TheThirties 1930s]]. Appearing in 1974, gorgeously shot in [[DeliberatelyMonochrome black and white]] using [[PropRecycling laboratory props]] from the original ''Film/{{Frankenstein|1931}}'' and starring a cast of brilliant comedic actors all at the very height of their talents, it is generally regarded as one of the funniest and most quotable movies ever made.
