Young Frankenstein (1974)
Young Frankenstein (1974) is a classic comedy film directed by Mel Brooks and starring Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, and Marty Feldman. The movie follows the story of Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, a descendant of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, who inherits his ancestor’s castle and attempts to recreate the experiments that made his ancestor famous.
The movie is filled with comedic moments, but it also contains some surprisingly sexual moments. One of the most memorable is when Dr. Frankenstein and his assistant Igor (Feldman) are discussing the creation of the monster. Igor suggests that they use a brain from a “normal” person, to which Dr. Frankenstein replies, “What do you mean, ‘normal’? Are you referring to sexual perversion?” This line is delivered in a humorous way, but it is also a sly reference to the sexual themes of the movie.
Another memorable sexual moment comes when Dr. Frankenstein and his fiancée Elizabeth (Madeline Kahn) are discussing their wedding night. Elizabeth is worried that Dr. Frankenstein will be too scared to consummate their marriage, to which he replies, “I’m not scared, I’m excited.” This line is delivered in a humorous way, but it also serves as a reminder of the sexual tension between the two characters.
The movie also contains a few more subtle sexual moments. For example, when Dr. Frankenstein and Igor are discussing the creation of the monster, Igor suggests that they use a brain from a “normal” person, to which Dr. Frankenstein replies, “What do you mean, ‘normal’? Are you referring to sexual perversion?” This line is delivered in a humorous way, but it is also a sly reference to the sexual themes of the movie.
Overall, Young Frankenstein (1974) is a classic comedy film that contains some surprisingly sexual moments. From the subtle references to the more overt lines, the movie is filled with sexual innuendos that add to the comedic effect.
