Gene Wilder is no more.
Very sad . Some of things he did on 'Young Frankenstein' and 'The Producers' were priceless. Another big blow for Mel Brooks .

Young Frankenstein - still in my top ten all time. The Producers - ah! oh my - Blazing Sillies - perfect!

Coincidentally Young Frankenstein was on TV only last month or so.




Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: [Reading from his grandfathers' notebook] "As the minuteness of the parts formed a great hinderance to my speed, I resolved therefore to make a being of a gigantic stature."

[pause]

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Of course. That would simplify everything.

Inga: In other vords: his veins, his feet, his hands, his organs vould all have to be increased in size.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Exactly.

Inga: He vould have an enormous schwanzstucker.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: That goes without saying.

Inga: Voof.

Igor: He's going to be very popular.

:lol:


That and other quotes here:

Superb.

This scene was always one of my favourites. We have a mechanical designer at work who sounds like this and also walks around a bit clompy and distracted like Frankenstein.
