Young Frankenstein

Factual error: The movie is set in Transylvania, but the natives all speak German and with German accents (probably an homage to the book, but still incorrect). (00:14:30)

Continuity mistake: When the casket slides off the wagon, breaks open and cracks a couple of its wood slats, the arm from the body is not protruding from it until Igor and Frederick come up to it in the next shot.

Question: What year is the film set?

Luka Keats

Chosen answer: While no specific date is given, Mel Brooks wanted to do a tribute parody to the classic 1930's horror film, thus the Black and White film and the 30's style film techniques. However, Hans Delbrück (the brain Igor is suppose to steal) was a real-life person who died in 1929. Given that and the cars seen, it's a safe bet it's suppose to be set in the early 1930's.
