Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 14

It's!!!....Not alive.
It's horror comedy night on TCM, starting at 5PM. The complete lineup is listed below, but I want to focus on 10PM and the 1974 Mel Brooks classic, Young Frankenstein, starring the recently departed Gene Wilder as Dr. Frankenstein. (You know how to pronounce it.)

I think it may be the best horror comedy ever made, because while it makes fun of the Frankenstein films, it is so clear everyone involved actually really loves those movies.

If I ever, ever need a laugh, all I have to do is watch this scene featuring Gene Hackman as the Old Blind Man, trying his best to make a new friend.

Here's the complete lineup of tonight's movies:

5:00 PM The Cat and the Canary (1939)
6:30 PM The Fearless Vampire Killers (1966)
8:30 PM Little Shop of Horrors (1960)
10:00 PM Young Frankenstein (1974)
12:00 AM Hillbillys in a Haunted House (1967)
1:30 AM Spooks Run Wild (1941)
2:45 AM Ghosts on the Loose (1943)
