Trivia

  • "Charles Opie, MISSIONARY", is on the third brain on the shelf. Credit Paul Mulik for the following: It seems that there was a graphic artist named Charles Opie who had previously worked as a preacher. The artist who made the labels for the brain jars was a buddy of Opie's, so he put the name on the label as an inside joke. Apparently, Charles Opie didn't find out about it until many years later.

Metacritic

100

Mel Brooks is home with Young Frankenstein, his most disciplined and visually inventive film (it also happens to be very funny).

A perfect example of early Brooks firing on all spoofily comedic cylinders.
