Young Frankenstein

 (1974)

Young Frankenstein Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

An affectionate parody that pays homage to the Frankenstein films (from the novel 'Frankenstein' by Mary Shelley) directed by James Whale in the 1930s, 'Young Frankenstein' is both a zany comedy and a cinematic tour de force. Written by director Mel Brooks and the film's star, Gene Wilder, 'Young Frankenstein' has all the usual--and in this case slightly unusual--suspects: the reluctant scientist Frederick Frankenstein, who is actually the grandson of the infamous creature-creator (pronounced "Fronken-steen" and played by Wilder), his spoiled fiancé (Madeline Kahn), Igor the pop-eyed hunchback (Marty Feldman), his dizzy assistant (Teri Garr), the castle's hideous head housekeeper (Cloris Leachman), and, of course, the Monster (Peter Boyle). Highlights include the sets, which are the original ones used in the Whale films; the beautiful black-and-white cinematography; and the fine screenplay. Combining noirish elegance with uproarious sight gags and double entendres is a feat Brooks pulls off fabulously, directing the wonderful ensemble to act with sensitivity and humanistic feelings as well as with lunatic abandon. 'Young Frankenstein' is a treat from beginning to end.

Young Frankenstein Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Young Frankenstein reanimates on Blu-ray in a handsome 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. The black-and-white imagery is nothing short of beautiful, and Blu-ray definitely brings out the very best of this transfer. The film's heavy grain structure is left intact here, and it helps to add an authentic, classic, film-like look to the transfer. Detail is very nice; the classroom scene that opens the film showcases nice depth in addition to detail. The clothing, chalkboard, and desks all offer a nice appearance. Likewise, the fine attention to detail and the texture of the Frankenstein castle walls look marvelous, and the secret laboratory's equipment appears larger than life, crude, but nevertheless a series of fine looking props that shines on the disc. The film exhibits the occasional spot and speckle on the print, but nothing that draws attention away from the overall quality of the image or the look and feel of the film. Blacks are deep and dark, shadows used to nice effect in several scenes, and some dark corners of the frame in select shots look fantastic. The image is sharp and clear, never all that soft. Young Frankenstein is a fine example of how a classic film can look on Blu-ray, in this case a superbly-rendered black-and-white masterpiece. 20th Century Fox has proven capable of releasing stunning transfers of the classic films in their library, with recent examples being Planet of the Apes and The Omen. Young Frankenstein is no exception.


Young Frankenstein Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented with a DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack in addition to the original monaural soundtrack, Young Frankenstein sounds just fine on Blu-ray, faithful to the original source and never creating a false, over-exaggerated mix that fails to mesh with the content of the film. Focused up the middle and rarely spreading out much further, and especially not into the rears, the audio has a nice classic sound about it. Perhaps just a bit too loud at reference volume, as demonstrated during the opening music in particular, the track is nevertheless robust but not exhilarating. Dialogue is strong and clear. Sound effects are never overbearing or juiced up, just as they were meant to be. The first time Frankenstein ascends to the top of the laboratory in an attempt to bring the monster to life serves as a fine example. The lossless track builds on the mono track, providing more clarity and precision, but not necessarily heads-and-shoulders superiority.
