This last week, the hubbinator and I have been spending time with Mel. Not the actual Mel but the director’s movies. Yes, I’m talking about Mel Brooks. The visionary comedic genius of Young Frankenstein, Space Balls, History of the World Part I, and Blazing Saddles.
It was because of our love of Mel that we started thinking of buying his collection on Blu-Ray.
So we checked out the offerings and spied several movies we hadn’t seen before and a few that only stirred faint memories. My oldest confessed that she had never seen Space Balls. And while that made me feel like a little bit of a failure, I reminded myself that she had seen all of the works of the Python boys.
then my mother added that she thought the movies were available for streaming on Netflix. (still have to check this one out.)
Now, the question I ask of you is: What is your favorite Mel Brooks movie?
Until next time, may the Schwartz be with you.
