A group of astronomers from Texas State University-San Marcos used some celestial sleuthing to solve a long-standing mystery about the events that inspired Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, author of the novel "Frankenstein," to write the legendary tale.
Young Frankenstein was released on December 15, 1974, starring Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle and Marty Feldman, etc. This black and white, comedy and thriller film was directed by Mel Brooks and written by Wilder himself and Brooks. The story is about "Dr. Frankenstein's grandson (Wilder), after years of living down the family reputation, inherits granddad's castle and repeats the experiments." It grossed an estimated $86,300,000 in America.
