A to Z Blogging Challenge: Movie Memories
Blogging about the movies that made an impact on my life
I love parody in any form: poetry, music, sketches, stories...and movies.
My first exposure to movie parody was "The Carol Burnett Show." In the 60s and 70s, variety shows were very popular: Flip Wilson, Dean Martin, Smothers Brothers, Sonny & Cher, Donny & Marie...just to name a few.
But Carol Burnett was the reigning Queen! The movie parodies were my favorite and Carol and the gang tackled some of the best including Double Indemnity, Sunset Blvd., Love Story and Gone with the Wind.
So it's no surprise that Young Frankenstein (1974) became one of my favorite films. Gene Widler, Madeline Khan, Marty Feldman and Cloris Leachman are hilarious in the parody of Mary Shelley's classic work "Frankenstein."
