On the set of “Young Frankenstein” with Mel Brooks

Fronkonsteen, we mean, of course. Directed by Mel Brooks, this 1974 film became a cult favorite and was shot with many of the same props and lab equipment as the original Frankenstein in 1931. It starred Gene Wilder, Marty Feldman, Terri Garr and Peter Boyle here with the director on set! What a bunch!

Tribute to Eddie Marsan

Eddie Marsan is one of director Mike Leigh’s favourite actors but he has also worked with Scorsese, Spielberg, Michael Mann, Woody Allen and Guy Ritchie. He turned heads, and a few stomachs, as tormented Olivia Colman’s vicious husband James in Paddy Considine’s directorial debut, Tyrannosaur (Click here). He was awesome in Vera Drake (2004) & The Disappearance of Alice Creed (2009) and pretty disturbing in Happy-Go-Lucky (2008).

We love him, his films and this stellar portrait of Marsan that appeared in HUNGER magazine (october 2012).
