Is there such a thing? I always see the box art and pictures on the back in color format, but have yet to see the actual film in color. What's up with that? Question

My suspicion is they're just trying to trick people who would never think of watching a B&W movie into buying/renting it with deceptive advertising.

I love that YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is in black and white personally.

Young Frankenstein can be no other way in my opinion. It would lose its charm and sense of homage (albeit satirical).

You want to see Frankenstein's monster really go berserk? Colorize this movie.

The original theatrical poster was in color, too.  By the way, has anyone seen the YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN stage musical?  It's coming to Boston and I was wondering if it is any good.

I bet they could put it in color if they wanted to but I don't think they want to because they had the technology to make it in color back then but decided not to to stay true to the Frankenstein feel.

The reason I know they can put it in color is because almost all the Three Stooges shorts have been released on DVD in color now.

If they colorise the film, I say we hunt them down and feed them to rabid weasels...that is all.

Of course, what you really need to do is turn off the color when watching BLAZING SADDLES.  That works.

I have some postcards with full color promo photos from THE HONEYMOONERS.  While Audrey Meadows is even more stunning in full color, it somehow feels...well...wrong.  As far as I'm concerned, the reality of 1950's Brooklyn was, in fact, in black & white.  Wink

Isn't there a musical of this now (or coming out soon?)  I bet when they make a movie of the musical it will be in color.

Yes, Mel Brooks has brought "Young Frankenstein" to Broadway, as a stage musical.
