Tuesday, July 26 by Anarch

Interested in learning what actors and actresses made the "Young Frankenstein cast?" "Young Frankenstein" is a classic horror-comedy-musical, originally released back in 1974. More than 30 years later, it's still a major hit and an unforgettable cult classic. If you're curious as to who starred in the "Young Frankenstein" cast, you've come to the right place. Here are some of the more notable stars from the film.

  1. Gene Wilder: You couldn't have a "Young Frankenstein" cast without the young Dr. Frankenstein, as played by the talented comedic genius Gene Wilder. Mixing charm, humor and curly blond hair, the young Dr. Frankenstein is charming and likable, with just enough madness thrown in to keep it funny.
  2. Peter Boyle: What kind of a "Young Frankenstein" cast would you have without The Monster? Peter Boyle is hilarious with this oafish creature, particularly during his "Putting on the Ritz" duet with the young Dr. Frankenstein (as played by Gene Wilder).
  3. Marty Feldman: Marty Feldman stole the show and is usually considered one of the more memorable members of the "Young Frankenstein" cast. Playing the role of Igor (pronounced Eye-gor), he is unforgettable and has some of the funniest lines in the movie. A little bit of trivia that you might not know about the "Young Frankenstein" cast and its audience is that Aerosmith's hit song "Walk This Way" was actually inspired by Marty Feldman's character, after Steven Tyler watched the film.
  4. Madeline Kahn: Starting out as the love interest of the mad scientist Dr. Frankenstein, Madeline Kahn rounds out the "Young Frankenstein" cast as the beautiful Elizabeth. Madeline is a trained opera singer, which probably explains some of her funniest 'lines' in the movie.
  5. Cloris Leachman: You're sure to get a laugh out of Cloris Leachman as the spinsterish and creepy Frau Blücher. One of the creepiest members of the "Young Frankenstein" cast, you're sure to get a chuckle whenever they mention her name.
  6. Teri Garr: In a strange twist of fate, this sexy lab assistant assists the doctor in more ways than one. Teri Garr rounds out the "Young Frankenstein" cast as the talented hay-roller, Inga. Oh, it's good to be the doctor! 
  7. Kenneth Mars: While often an overlooked member of the "Young Frankenstein" cast, no Frankenstein tale would be complete without Inspector Kemp.  Talented actor Kenneth Mars aces his performance as the suspicious policeman in this 1974 comedy film.
