Ranking among the most hilarious comedies of all time, this is Mel Brooks' take on the biggest monster myth of them all. Neurosurgeon Dr. Friedrich von Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) inherits a castle from ancestor, a notoriously experimental German baron. Discovering his ancestor's papers, he decides to recreate his 'shocking' experiments - namely, reanimating the dead...
In this perceptive, sidesplitting homage to Hitchcock films, director, star, and writer Mel Brooks plays the average American guy, psychiatrist Richard Thorndyke, who's terrified of heights. He becomes the new chief of the Institute for the Very Very Nervous, where things are not what they seem, and it's not long before Richard finds himself embroiled in murder, deception, and other hilarious situations.
A movie within a movie, Silent Movie stars Brooks as Mel Funn, a filmmaker who has seen better days - for one thing, he's just come out of a bout with the bottle. When his best friends (Marty Feldman and Dom DeLuise) rescue him from despair and convince him to make another attempt at moviemaking, Mel comes up with an idea - a silent picture. Alas, this is the 1970s, and in order to get backing from wacky, frazzled studio chief Sid Caesar, the three pals have to get lots of celebrities to agree to be in their silent picture.
