At first glance, Stanley Kubrick's The Shining (1980) and Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein (1974) have little in common. However, Boise Classic Movies will be screening both films Wednesday, Oct. 21 and Friday, Oct. 23, thereby inviting comparison.

For starters, both films are by American auteurs and products of the 1970s "New Hollywood" movement. Both feature quintessential performances from unlikely leading men: Jack Nicholson, Peter Boyle and Gene Wilder. More interesting, supporting actors Shelley Duvall (The Shining) and Marty Feldman (Young Frankenstein) look like lost siblings. Just check out those peepers.
