  1. No I don't think if YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN...("That's Fronkensteen" )was filmed in color it would have taken away the camp and homage to the Unviersal Monster films of the 30's,40s and into the 50's. Using the original sets from Karloff's Frankenstein only made the gags and the parody work so well. This is a hallmark of Mel Brooks films. He has Parodied Hitchcock in "HIGH ANXIETY" and even remade the Jack Benny classic TO BE OR NOT TO BE".
  2. Are the ROAD MOVIES OF HOPE AND CROSBY Slapstick comedies? I think they are. The use of old gags made new and the vocal quality of Bob Hopes puns and sight gags remind me of Groucho at his best. Both of these stars were major radio personalities from the late 30's and thru WWII. Therefore I would consider the "ROAD Movies" Slapstick comedies. Who Agrees with me? My favorite is "ROAD TO MOROCCO and I was surprised that any of the "Road Movies" were not added to the Festival lineup.
  3. The use of cameos in Slapstick comedy is indeed important from the Stooges in Its A MadMad...World to the end of 'SCARED STIFF" with Hope and Crosby the face of the skeletons that even have Dean Martin screaming.
