The public loved him and begged for more but he left too early.
21 December 2005 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

It's one of the best comedies I ever saw, made with much intelligence and much courage in a time when censorship was pretty terrible. Particularly brilliant and unforgettable: the dream scene on the beach with naked Marty and naked Swedish goddess, which is a tasty parody of the Ingmar Bergmann's movies. The German title is "Haferbrei mac-ht sexy" ("Porridge makes sexy"). Marty Fieldman, wild-haired and pop-eyed as always, is to see in many cult favorites. He became notably famous for his role as Igor, Gene Wilder's bemused hunchbacked assistant (whose hump switched shoulders from scene to scene), in director Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein (1973).
