Young Frankenstein Episode 3: The same gear as Karloff used

We discuss the fact that Mel Brooks was able to track down Ken Strickfaden who created the original laboratory equipment for the 1931 Frankenstein movie, starring Boris Karloff. Back then, the Universal monster movie did not give Strickfaden any screen credit. Mel promised Ken if they could borrow the gear, which he had saved and stored in his own garage, Brooks would make sure to give him the credit he so rightly deserved. Mel kept his word!

We continue to discuss the other credits contained during minute number three. It is interesting to see how older movies put almost all of their credits in the opening.

Starting next week, we will begin introducing guests to the show. To see who is coming and when, just visit our website. Feel free to contact us anytime through social media or by using the contact form on our website.
