Mel Brooks‘ own words telling all about the players, the filming, and studio antics during the production of this great comedy classic. The book is alive and teeming with hundreds of photos, original interviews, and hilarious commentary.
Young Frankenstein was made with deep respect for the craft and history of cinema, and for the power of a good schwanzstucker joke. This picture-driven book, written by one of the greatest comedy geniuses of all time, takes readers inside the classic film’s marvelous creation story via never-before-seen black and white and color photography from the set and contemporary interviews with the cast and crew, most notably, legendary writer-director Mel Brooks.
With access to more than 225 behind-the-scenes photos including production stills, and with captions written by Brooks himself. This book will include interviews with gifted director of photography, Gerald Hirschfeld, Academy Award-winning actress Cloris Leachman, producer Michael Gruskoff, and the larger than life Gene Wilder.
