    To Jandy, I want to say that while you are correct that there are elements from Bride of Frankenstein, the real move that Young Frankenstein is based upon is Son of Frankenstein, starring Basil Rathbone. If you have not seen Son of Frankenstein, watch it and then watch Young Frankenstein, and you’ll see that Young Frankenstein steals so much more from Basil Rathbone’s movie to the point that it actually makes Young Frankenstein even funnier and helps to make Son of Frankenstein more classical.

    Thanks for the tip! I haven’t seen Son of Frankenstein, so I’ve only noted the references from Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein. It makes sense that Son of Frankenstein would be in play, since Young Frankenstein is about Frankenstein’s grandson. I’ll have to watch that before my next Young Frankenstein rewatch.

      Please do. It’s awesome and has Bela Lugosi playing Igor. Of all the Frankenstein movies, Son of Frankenstein is probably my favorite.

      I watched Son of Frankenstein over the weekend, and really enjoyed it! You’re right, definitely lots of elements borrowed for Young Frankenstein. Interesting that in Son, he defended his father as misunderstood the whole time, though, while at first in Young, he tried to distance himself. Have to say, Basil Rathbone, Boris Karloff, and Bela Lugosi all in the same movie is pretty hard to beat, too. Thanks for the encouragement to watch it!
