That's right! Today is Frankenstein Friday, and Monday is National Frankenstein Day! Isn't it amazing that this very strange story written by Mary Shelley two centuries ago, in 1818, has retained so much popularity and has so many versions of the story made? I wonder if she ever suspected it would become such a classic horror story. Did you know that Thomas Edison made the first film version of it in 1910?
Most people are more familiar with the 1930's Boris Karloff version, which is really nothing like the book. That would be a great book to discuss on a From Cover to Reel podcast! (Don't miss the episode that covers Roald Dahl's Witches on there now!)
Around our house, if we are given the choice of which version of the Frankenstein Movies to watch, we would probably all choose Young Frankenstein. (We aren't really purists in this case! We love to laugh!)
So, today, in honor or Frankenstein Friday and National Frankenstein Day, we are asking this Friday Faves question:
What is your favorite line from Young Frankenstein?
#2: "Yes! He was my BOYFRIEND!" Cloris Leachman. And who can forget her classic, "Ovaltine?"
#3: "There wolf, there castle." Ha ha Ha Ha
#4: And this is my favorite, "You take the blond, I'll take the one in the turban!"
If you have no idea what we are talking about with these movie lines, then you definitely need to go watch Young Frankenstein this Halloween, or sooner! National Frankenstein Day is a great reason! Or, if hearing these lines is making you crack up, go watch it again. And don't forget to go to the comments and tell us what some of your favorite lines from the movie are!
If you are really into Frankenstein, here are a couple more versions you may want to check out.
