When Gerhard Falkstein meets Dr. Frankenstein in his class, he refers to Baron von Frankenstein as his great-grandfather, while the rest of the film refers to him as the grandfather. However, it is stated later in the film (most notably in the deleted sequence "The Reading Of The Will") that the Frankenstein who's will is being read is the Great-Grandfather, and the infamous Victor Frankenstein is his son, or Fredrick's Grandfather.

If you love comedies, but haven't seen Young Frankenstein, you're in for a delicious treat.After three decades, it still makes people laugh to death, and it's a must-see for every spoof lover in the world.
Actually, it's not a parody, but a homage by Mel Brooks to James Whale's classic,shot in black and white on the same location and with the same props.
The "hero" is Dr.Frederick Frankenstein(Gene Wilder), who, after a long period in which he hated it, decides to repeat his grandfather's experiment.The result is the Transylvanians want to kill him, despite the fact that the monster is the most harmless creature in the world.
This sort of sequel to the original Frankenstein is hilarious from start to finish, mostly because of two actors:Peter Boyle and Martin Feldman.The former is great as the mute creature(he'll compensate that by talking too much in Everybody Loves Raymond), particularly in the scene with Gene Hackman's Blind Man.But it's Feldman's Igor that makes this film unmissable.No wonder, given he's got the best lines("Wait Master.It might be dangerous...you go first").
With no doubt Mel Brooks' masterpiece.
The Scary Movie franchise wishes it was this good.
