Movie Idea: Oh My Darling Clemenstein

I came up with this movie idea a few years back and promptly forgot about it. It's the early to mid-1800's in North America. A young doctor from Boston packs up and moves west to practice medicine on the frontier. He soon establishes a small hospital but also has a regular route checking on small communities. Alas, he failed to realize that when it came to women, the pickin's would be slim and certainly not what he was used to back east. So he decides to build himself a bride from parts of settler and native women who die or get close enough to it that he can fool their families to let him take them away.

Sure, a Frankenstein rip-off based around an amusing title isn't a strong basis for a movie, but picture some amazon from the WWE butchering "Oklahoma!" the way Frank Boyle did "Puttin' On the Ritz" in "Young Frankenstein".
