Young Frankenstein 


 

Peter Boyle (famous actor, most noted lately for playing Ray Ramono's father on "Everybody Loves Raymond") starred as the monster in the Mel Brooks' movie.


 

Cloris Leachman played Frau Blucher.  In both the movie and the stage version, a horse neigh's every time Fraue Blucher's name is mentioned.  Blucher is a reference to a glue factory, hence the horse neighing.


 

Gene Hackman played the blind man in the movie.  He was a friend of Gene Wilder's and asked to have a cameo in the film. 


 

In the film, audience members throw tomatoes at the monster after the song and dance routine.  Mel Brooks thought the idea was hilarious.  His wife (the late actress Anne Bancroft) reported thought the idea was silly stating that "No one brings tomatoes to the theater."
