Thanks! I never knew that. I love Mel Brooks' stuff, especially Young Frankenstien. Mel Brooks also provided the cat hiss in the scene where Dr. F. is playing darts with the fake-hand dude. He also howled (portraying a werewolf) when Igor is driving the doctor to the castle. ("Werewolf." "There wolf. There castle.")

Actually Gene Hackman is really obvious, and he's also credited, check imdb.

Gene Hackman also makes a cameo in the film...almost no one recognized him, he plays the old blind man whom the monster shared some soup, wine and a (Tee hee) cigar.

With all due respect, this is not an egg -it's just an excellent joke (the first one?) in this wonderful movie!
