Frankenstein Village is a fictional location and the primary setting for the first three Frankenstein films produced by Universal Pictures; Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein and Son of Frankenstein. It is loosely based on the state of Ingolstadt in Bavaria, Germany, which was a central location in the original 1818 Frankenstein novel by Mary Shelley. In the film series, the village is not identified as Frankenstein Village until the beginning of the 1939 film Son of Frankenstein.
Young Frankenstein? Film Noir? Yes, its probably one of the funniest films ever made. I'd love to have been a fly on the wall to watch these actors cracking up between takes. While the genre doesn't really include comedies this film is a loving noir tribute to the original Frankenstein movies. The studio wanted Mel Brooks to do it in color. He refused and threatened to walk.
