December 20, 2007 IS Mel Brooks getting ready to hang up his rubber chicken? The 81-year-old comic will be in Las Vegas over New Year's to scout the aters for the first road production of his Broadway musical "Young Frankenstein," says a source. But after that, as he's been telling pals, his plate will be project-free. "Mel's thrilled with his newfound success of recent years," adds the insider. "But at this point, he feels directing another film or mounting another stage musical would just be a pain in the a - -." The only gig that might conceivably tempt him back into the spotlight is the one-man show on Broadway he's been mulling - although, "Unlike Billy Crystal , Mel would run his no more than a week or two."

Last year the show earned $40 million, and as co-producer/book writer/music writer and lyricist, Brooks pockets millions from it. The recent film version of "The Producers," however, was a commercial disappointment.

The iconoclastic, not-politically-correct Blazing Saddles (1974) is one of Mel Brooks' funniest, most successful and most popular films. It is an unsubtle spoof or parody of all the cliches from the time-honored genre of westerns, similar to the comic attitude of numerous Marx Brothers films. Brooks' third feature film tagline blurb advertised: "Blazing Saddles...or never give a saga an even break!" Notice in the film's poster, the gold coin is inscribed: "HI, I'M MEL. TRUST ME." The crude, racist and sexist film with toilet humor and foul language includes the main elements of any western - a dance-hall girl, a gunslinger, a sheriff, a town full of pure folk, and more, but it twists them around. So they become a black sheriff, a racist town, a sex-obsessed Governor, and so forth. In addition, there are other anachronistic elements - Hedley Lamarr (a misnaming of actress Hedy Lamarr), hints of the seductive character Frenchy (played by Marlene Dietrich) in

32. Mel Brooks Starts Nonprofit Foundation To Save Word 'Schmuck' | The Onion - Amer
NEW YORK—The organization has compiled schmuckrelated data revealing that, in 2006, the word was spoken a mere 28 times—17 of these by brooks himself.

Mel Brooks Starts Nonprofit Foundation To Save Word 'Schmuck'
Enlarge Image An emotional Brooks stopped short of kvetching at a schmuck fundraiser Monday. "Schmuck is dying," a sober Brooks said during a 2,000-person rally held in his hometown of Williamsburg, Brooklyn Monday. "For many of us, saying 'schmuck' is a way of life. Yet when I walk down the street and see people behaving in foolish, pathetic, or otherwise schmucky ways, I hear only the words 'prick' and 'douche bag.' I just shake my head and think, 'I don't want to live in a world like this.'" Perhaps more startling, only 23 percent of men know what schmuck means, and only 1.2 percent of these men are under the age of 78. If such trends continue, Brooks estimates that by 2011, such lesser-used terms as "imbecile," "dummy," "schlub," and "contemptible ne'er-do-well" will all surpass schmuck, which is projected to completely disappear by the year 2020 or whenever Brooks dies.

20 Mel Brooks
His humor brings down Hitler, and the house
By Nancy Shute Posted 8/12/01 `I was never crazy about Hitler," says Mel Brooks. Who was? But even now, more than 50 years after the fall of the Third Reich, the man who masterminded the extermination of more than 7 million people is still handled with care, as if the magnitude of his crime demands no less. Brooks had the guts, and gall, to realize that the simplest way to demolish Hitler was to mock him. "If you stand on a soapbox and trade rhetoric with a dictator you never win," says Brooks, 75. "That's what they do so well; they seduce people. But if you ridicule them, bring them down with laughterthey can't win. You show how crazy they are." Thus was born Springtime for Hitler, the ersatz musical that serves as the crux of The Producers, Brooks's tale of a larcenous Broadway producer determined to stage the worst show ever and abscond with the cash when it fails. In Brooks's mad vision, chorines decked out in SS regalia goose-step while trilling "Springtime for Hitler and Germany! Winter for Poland and France!" A Hitler Youth type chirps: "Don't be stupid, be a smarty, come and join the Nazi party!" And the chorus croons: "We're marching to a faster pace. Look out, here comes the Master Race!"
