Young Frankenstein: The Story of the Making of the Film

Young Frankenstein: The Story of the Making of the Film: A Mel Brooks' BookYoung Frankenstein: The Story of the Making of the Film: A Mel Brooks’ Book by Mel Brooks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A real treasure for fans of the film, this delightful book is rife with Mel Brooks’s distinctive voice and lots of great behind-the-scenes photographs — but not nearly enough behind-the-scenes stories! Most of the input from the cast and crew is only about how great it was to work with everyone, but I was hoping for something a little more in-depth. Still, this isn’t a film study, it’s a coffee table book for people who love YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, and if you adore the film as much as I do you will definitely cherish this book. It’s a must-have for everyone who can’t hear the song “Puttin’ on the Ritz” without at least privately chuckling.
