A few very funny outtakes from the Young Frankenstein scene where Madeline Kahn portrays the role of the fiancée, Elizabeth, to the young Dr. Frankenstein, as played by Gene Wilder. The scene has the four characters of Teri Garr, Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn and Marty Feldman. Feldman gives one of his best performances in this scene and was often mentioned by Gene Wilder to be so funny they couldn't help but laugh. He said the shawl Kahn was wearing wasn't supposed to fall apart and every time Feldman bit it, he'd get a mouth full of fur. The beautiful Madeline Kahn Kahn was a celebrated comedienne and actress that also appeared in two other of Brook's films, "Blazing Saddles" (1974) and "History of the World:Part 1" (1981). Kahn was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of ovarian cancer in 1998 and she passed away the following year on December 3, 1999. Feldman was one of Hollywood's most famous actors known for his comedic genius and rather distinctive crooked and bulging eyes, which were attributed to botched operation for Graves disease. In regards to his personal life, Feldman was a voracious chain smoker and some say he smoked as many as 5 packs of cigarettes a day. He died massive heart attack in his hotel room while taking part in the film "Yellowbeard" in 1982. Feldman is noted as the first Saturn Award winner for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Young Frankenstein.
