Mel Brooks. The name conjures up some of the most enduring comedic images in the history of American popular culture: The inimitable 2000 Year Old Man. Max Bialystock. Springtime for Hitler. Flatulent cowboys in Blazing Saddles. The bumbling Maxwell Smart. Young Frankenstein and his well-endowed monster. From stand-up to films to TV to Broadway, for 65 years, in every medium through which entertainment can possibly pass, Mel Brooks has conquered the world with laughter. A celebrated director, actor, producer, composer and writer, Brooks is one of only 11 people in history to win an Emmy(R), Grammy(R), Oscar(R) and Tony(R) Award. And now, in a first-of-its-kind collection, fans of this ferociously gifted entertainer will fall joyfully down a rabbit hole into a wonderland of Brooks' television appearances, short films, documentaries, tributes, songs and genuine rarities.
