Maybe in order to understand mankind we have to look at that word itself. MANKIND. Basically, it's made up of two separate words mank and ind. What do these words mean? It's a mystery and that's why so is mankind.

Trivia that mentions this person:
Young Frankenstein [1974]
  • Igor (Marty Feldman) mentions that his grandfather (also named Igor as evidenced by Frederick's first visit to the lab) used to work for Frederick's grandfather. Interestingly in the original Frankenstein film the assistant's name was Fritz. Igor (spelled Ygor) did not appear until Son of Frankenstein.
  • Rock band [?] Aerosmith took a break from a long night of recording to see Young Frankenstein in 1974. Steven Tyler wrote the band's hit {Walk This Way} the morning after seeing the movie, inspired by Marty Feldman's first scene, the "walk this way... this way" scene.
  • The shifting hump on Igor's back was an ad-libbed gag of Marty Feldman's. He had surreptitiously been shifting the hump back and forth for several days when cast members finally noticed. It was then added to the script.
