'Young Frankenstein'
Around the time of 1972, Wilder began writing a script he called Young Frankenstein. But he didn't have much. The movie got traction when Wilder teamed up with Brooks to write the script and Wilder's agent wondered if there were any roles for his two new clients: Marty Feldman and Peter Boyle. The film went on to gross $86 million on a budget of $2 million and earned Wilder and Brooks their second Oscar nominations each (for Writing).
