MEL BROOKS (1926-)

m. brooks

For a couple years Mel Brooks was the hottest, and most emulated, comedic director in Hollywood. But, like most schtick comedians Brooks was only as good as his material and after Young Frankenstein the well went completely dry. Taking into consideration the enormous popularity of Airplane and the Naked Gun series Brooks’ zany influence lived on long after he faded from the scene.
