Young Frankenstein

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Inga, Fredrick and Igor throw the net over the monster, Inga sticks the syringe of the sedative in the monster's back but does not push down on the top, yet the monster still falls over. A few seconds later when she collapses on the monster, you can see all of the fluid inside spray out. (01:12:05)

Continuity mistake: When Igor is holding onto the cemetery gate, his hands swap between angles from holding two bars close to each other, to having an empty bar in between.

Continuity mistake: The brain that Frankenstein draws on the blackboard in the first scene is different from the one behind him as he is seated and lecturing. Check the shading on the brain stem. (00:05:55 - 00:09:35)

Trivia: The Laboratory equipment is the same equipment used in the original Frankenstein.

Trivia: Another time you can see Gene Wilder laughing when he's not supposed to be is after he finds out the project failed (the quiet, dignity, and grace speech). He starts strangling the monster, and you can see that he is stifling laughter. Finally, he can't hold it in any longer and proceeds to partially hide his face behind the monster lying on the table in an attempt to cover up his smirks (but you can still see that he is laughing).

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.

Question: What is the melody that Frau Blucher plays to calm down the monster?

Chosen answer: It's called "Transylvanian Lullaby" (as they tell you in the film) and was composed for the movie.

Myridon

Question: Dr Frankenstein tells a student at a lecture he is giving that he is not interested in death but the preservation of life. If this is true then why would he continue in the footsteps of his grandfather?

Chosen answer: That's how he felt at that moment. He became inspired to follow in his grandfather's footsteps after reading his books.
