Young Frankenstein This time with laughs. Mel Brooks’s com­edy par­o­dies the Boris Karloff films, right down to be­ing filmed in black and white and with a pe­riod score. Gene Wilder plays the grand­son of the orig­i­nal sci­en­tist who trans­forms ‘an inar­tic­u­late mass of life­less tis­sues’ into ‘a cul­tured so­phis­ti­cated…man about town’. A mu­si­cal ver­sion will come to the West End in Septem­ber.
