Young Frankenstein is #155 on my flickchart list.
I have a fondness for 1970's era Mel Brooks movies. This is among his best. And that's saying something...look at his output:
Blazing Saddles 1974 (#253)
Young Frankenstein 1974 (#155)
Silent Movie 1976 (#507)
High Anxiety 1978 (#380)
History of the World: Part One 1981 (#511)
He didn't direct another movie until Spaceballs (#935) in 1987. It's been a long time since I've seen it, and at the risk of upsetting Nan, I'm going to refer to it as "over-rated". It certainly lacked some of the cleverness of his earlier work. It always seemed to me he started to feel the pressure of the Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker juggernaut and couldn't get his form back.
I am using my flickchart list and blogging about the highest ranked movie for each letter of the alphabet.
