Memorable Movie Scenes: Part 27

Movie: Young Frankenstein

With movies like Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein, Mel Brooks accomplished the impossible, movies that could never be made today. The Frankenstein movie contained one of the greatest supporting casts ever, but one cameo appearance trumped all the rest.

The monster was loose and stumbled upon the dwelling of a lonely and blind priest. Good intentions are not always rewarded, even for a “man of God”. I mean, what could possibly go wrong when inviting a stranger in out of the cold, for warmth and nourishment? Well, everything as it turns out.

The Blind Priest scene with Gene Hackman is one of the greatest comedic masterpieces to ever be conceived. I don’t know who else could have pulled this off, maybe Jeff Bridges. It was a scene of timeless comedy, just watch the video and grin.
