40/40 Day 11 Report

While I knew it would happen one night this week,  I'm pleased to report that  tonight, as we begin only the second week of our 40 Years 40 Movies series, we've already broken the 100 mark for total attendance! 
But then I can't be too surprised that several folks made the trip out to see Mel Brooks' finest, Young Frankenstein. It was particularly nice to see on the big screen, considering that just under half of our Wednesday nights at The Slaughtered Lamb last year were spent revisiting the Universal and other horror classics from 1929-1946. It truly hammered home what a love letter this was that Gene Wilder envisioned, and that Mel Brooks helped make a reality.

For my money, the best bits of the film come courtesy of the late, great, Marty Feldman. So much so that I couldn't end the night without playing just a few of the outtakes where he had the rest of the cast breaking up on take after take. There will never be another quite like him...
On Deck: Tomorrow night we tear your soul apart with Clive Barker's Hellraiser!
