As the young Doctor (“Frankensteen“) has now advanced to prime middle age, his story, told with pinpoint historic accuracy in the great Mel Brooks movie spoof, “Young Frankenstein” (1974), will spool at the Academy in celebration of his fortieth birthday this year. Brooks, twice that age, will submit to interview by Leonard Maltin at the special season-opening AMPAS event. Co-stars Cloris Leachman and Teri Garr will also appear in person, as will the film’s exec producer Michael Gruskoff. A cultural experience to be in the same room with Mel Brooks.
