Young Frankenstein?

Come on. As an actor, one of the best lines from "To be, or not to be"
"You don't know me? I'm world famous in Poland!"

I feel so miserable without you; its almost like having you here.

I grew up watching Blazing Saddles, and Spaceballs!
I even did a biography on Mel Brooks for a school project. And I have to say that Mel brooks is a GENIUS!

As Mel has said in many interviews. "I many be the only Jew that can make money with Hitler!"

Heh, when they are tossing around ideas for the worst play,"One day George woke up to find he had turned into a giant cockroach". "No, it's too good".

Anything post-YF is a retread of some of his earlier stuff, or simply unfunny. He's like an old athlete who can't compete anymore, but loves the attention too much.

2002 Ccoupe, not as good as others, apparently

I'm not an actor.

Just to clarify, my comments could have led some to believe I was an actor. I am not! Or am I?

My fertile imagination allows me to act in front of the mirror of my bathroom regularly. Usually, I turn up to be a hero in the end. It seems that people hate my coming into power, but when finally established as a benevolent dictator, they love me. The good people organize huge manifestations in my honor, they all have my official portrait in their bedrooms, ubiquitous cameras all over town and inside peoples houses allow me to assert my popularity, and the happiness of my subjects, scratch that, I meant the citizenry. The people are all intelligent and beautiful. I kid you not, all of them, I have yet to observe a live dumb or ugly character on my monitors. Hunger is a thing of the past. Green soylent is freely available to all.

I feel so miserable without you; its almost like having you here.

RE: Movies by Mel Brooks

Well, I enjoy most of his work, but some movies do put me to sleep like "The Producers" But I enjoyed "History of the World -Part 1" the movie has a bunch of skits combined together to make a movie.
