Finally. Mel Brooks will be getting is star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. What has taken so long?! He will receive his honor on Friday, April 23. I would love to be there; but hope the wonders of the internet will help recreate the moment. Anyone lucky enough to be there is just that---plain lucky.
When I create my dream luncheon, Mel Brooks is always on the guest list. I want to be surrounded with laughter, good food, and great memories.
Here are a few classics:
At least watch the first few minutes.
History of the World Part I
This movie should be required viewing in every World History course. Very difficult to pick out a favorite clip. Whenever I meet someone by the name of Bob, I instantly become Madeline Kahn.
My absolute favorite. There is no way I could pick out a favorite scene.
Mr. Brooks, please consider becoming governor of the great state of California. It would be such an improvement.
Best wishes and congratulations to Mel Brooks on finally being recognized for all of his wonderful work. I look forward to a large booth at Canter’s soon.
