I have a copy of the raw audio of an interview Mr. Brooks did for a major news organization a few weeks
before he got THE PRODUCERS won its Tony awards.

It not only is pretty much a "DVD commentary" for the original Broadway cast, it also has some of the
funniest stuff I have ever heard, bar none, made up on the spot due to spontaneous technical glitches
that he riffed off.

The man is not just a national treasure, he's a world treasure.

IMHO Madeline Kahn was one of the sexiest women ever. Not only good looking, but smart, and funny, and great voice.

Q: Blazing Saddles also makes frequent use of the "N-word." Could you get away with that today?

A: Never. If they did a remake of Blazing Saddles today, they would leave out the N-word. And then, you've got no movie
. And I wouldn't have used it so much if I didn't have Richard Pryor with me on the set as one of my writers. And Cleavon Little [as Sheriff Bart] was great. Even though it was allowed, I kept asking Cleavon, 'Is that all right there? Is that too much there? Am I pushing this?' and he'd say, 'No, no, no, it's perfect there.'

That right there is all you need to know about society today. We've turned into a collection of quivering pantywaists, afraid to say anything even midly offensive, lest some PC asshole gets the vapors.

I was 9 when "history of the world pt1" came out, and i loved it then, and more so now. Even as a child i could see how much fun they were having. I haven't heard anything on Brooks in a while, and wondered if he was now possibly just very old, and lonely. Thank you subby!

You... I like you. You and I can get along.

Brooks has phenomenal taste in women. Seriously, damn near all the women in his movies were fantastically sexy

Poor guy lost his wife and almost all of the actors he worked with are gone like Khan, Hines, Little, Feldman Candy, Korman, Boyle, DeLuise, Neilson, Mars. He just doesn't seem to be the same anymore when you see him in interviews.

/Life Stinks is very underrated

Always remembering that Mel Brooks was married to Mrs. Robinson for 40+ years.
