I had started reviewing Mel Gibson when I realized that his contributions were already covered in previous blogs(When Actors Direct & Once Was Definitely Enough), so rather then lose the killer title I am adapting it for Mel Brooks.
Although Mel continued to provide laughs in his movies into the 90's they just were not up to the caliber of these three comic masterpieces.
Notable Exception: A bit different from his other straight-forward comedy's is his "Twelve Chairs" with Ron Moody and a very young Frank Langella
They'd End Up Calling Me "Chicago"
