Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Gene Wilder conceived the "Puttin' on the Ritz" scene, while Mel Brooks was resistant to it, feeling it detracted from the fidelity to Universal horror films in the rest of the film. It was only when he saw it with a howling audience that Brooks was confident about the sequence.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): In the classroom Frankenstein sticks a scalpel into his leg. A thick pad is clearly visible under his trouser leg, covering the whole top of his thigh.
  • When they started to film the "Puttin' on the Ritz" scene, no one was sure what the creature should say. The first time out of the gate, however, Peter Boyle came up with a strangled version of "Puiinin on da reeez!"
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): (Possily intentional) The candle that operates the bookcase door goes out momentarily, and then comes back on, before Frankenstein and the assistant go down the passageway.
