I'm so sad that this is the last episode of 'Breakdown of a Gag'. I truly learned so much more than I initially knew. Although some of the older gags have a dated quality about them, I still find them more respectful than those of today. I'm not exactly the biggest fan of Will Ferrell, but I have to admit he is a really funny guy.
I think the older slapstick films have something very special about them, meaning you can go back, watch them, and find something new that you may have missed before. Young Frankenstein is one of the greatest spoofs ever made. It was respectful of the old Universal horror films of the 1930s, but it also became its own classic film, basically laying the template of how to make a proper and successful lampoon/parody/spoof.
Thank you Vince and Dr. Edwards for the most enlightening and fascinating summer I've ever had.
