Their performances led to the release of the comedy album Years with Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks that sold over a million copies in At one point, when Brooks had financial and career struggles, the record sales from the Year Old Man were his chief source of income.
Interviewed by Dick Cavett in a series of ads, the Brewmaster in a German accent, as opposed to the Year Old Man's Yiddish accent said he was inside the original Trojan horse and "could've used a six-pack of fresh air. Brooks was involved in the creation of the Broadway musical All American which debuted on Broadway in Brooks wrote the play with lyrics by Lee Adams , and music by Charles Strouse. The show starred Ray Bolger as a southern science professor at a large university who uses the principles of engineering on the college's football team and the team begins to win games.
The show was directed by Joshua Logan , whose script doctored the second act and added a gay subtext to the plot. The show ran for 80 performances and received two Tony Award nominations. The animated short film The Critic , a satire of arty, esoteric cinema, was conceived by Brooks and directed by Ernest Pintoff. Brooks supplied running commentary as the baffled moviegoer trying to make sense of the obscure visuals. Brooks explains: "I was sick of looking at all those nice sensible situation comedies. They were such distortions of life I wanted to do a crazy, unreal comic-strip kind of thing about something besides a family.
No one had ever done a show about an idiot before. I decided to be the first. The series ran from until , although Brooks had little involvement after the first season. Get Smart was highly rated for most of its production and won seven Emmy Awards ,  including Outstanding Comedy Series in and For several years, Brooks had been toying with a bizarre and unconventional idea about a musical comedy of Adolf Hitler.
Levine and Sidney Glazier , and made his first feature film, The Producers The Producers was so brazen in its satire that major studios would not touch it, nor would many exhibitors.

Brooks finally found an independent distributor who released it as an art film, a specialized attraction. The Producers became a smash underground hit, first on the nationwide college circuit , then in revivals and on home video. Brooks later turned it into a musical , which became hugely successful on Broadway, receiving an unprecedented twelve Tony awards. Loosely based on Ilf and Petrov 's Russian novel of the same name about greedy materialism in post-revolutionary Russia, the film stars Ron Moody , Frank Langella , and Dom DeLuise as three men individually searching for a fortune in diamonds hidden in a set of 12 antique chairs.
Brooks makes a cameo appearance as an alcoholic ex-serf who "yearns for the regular beatings of yesteryear. The film received poor reviews and was not financially successful. Brooks then wrote an adaptation of Oliver Goldsmith 's She Stoops to Conquer , but was unable to sell the idea to any studio and believed that his career was over. Eventually, Brooks was hired as director for what would become Blazing Saddles , his third film. This film is a satire on the Western film genre and references older films such as Destry Rides Again , High Noon , Once Upon a Time in the West , and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre , as well as a surreal scene towards the end of the film referencing the extravagant musicals of Busby Berkeley.
Despite mixed reviews, the film was a success with younger audiences. The film won the Writers Guild of America Award for " Best Comedy Written Directly for the Screen " and in it was deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" by the Library of Congress and was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. Brooks has said that the film "has to do with love more than anything else. I mean when that black guy rides into that Old Western town and even a little old lady says 'Up yours, nigger!
So it's really the story of that heart being mended.
When Gene Wilder replaced Gig Young as the Waco Kid, he did so only if Brooks agreed that his next film would be an idea that Wilder had been working on; a spoof of the Universal series of Frankenstein films from several decades earlier. After the filming of Blazing Saddles was completed, Wilder and Brooks began writing the script for Young Frankenstein and shot the film in the spring of Brooks' voice can be heard three times, first as the wolf howl when the characters are on their way to the castle, second as the voice of Victor Frankenstein when the characters discover the laboratory, and third as the cat sound when Gene Wilder accidentally throws a dart out of the window in a scene with Kenneth Mars.
Composer John Morris again provided the music score and Universal monsters film special effects veteran Kenneth Strickfaden worked on the film. Young Frankenstein was the third-highest-grossing film domestically of , just behind Blazing Saddles. It received some of the best reviews of Brooks' career and even critic Pauline Kael liked the film, saying: "Brooks makes a leap up as a director because, although the comedy doesn't build, he carries the story through Brooks even has a satisfying windup, which makes this just about the only comedy of recent years that doesn't collapse.
Brooks' film resurrected several pieces of dialogue from his TV series, as well as from earlier Brooks films. Brooks followed up his two hit films with an audacious idea: the first feature-length silent comedy in four decades. It was the first movie produced by Brooks himself. Brooks stars as Professor Richard H. By Siskel and Ebert called Mel Brooks and Woody Allen "the two most successful comedy directors in the world today America's two funniest filmmakers. Knowing that anyone seeing a poster reading "Mel Brooks presents The Elephant Man " would expect a comedy, he set up the company Brooksfilms.
Brooksfilms has since produced a number of non-comedy films, including Frances , The Fly , and 84 Charing Cross Road , starring Anthony Hopkins and Anne Bancroft, along with comedies, including Richard Benjamin 's My Favorite Year , which was partially based on Mel Brooks' real life. Brooks sought to purchase the rights to 84 Charing Cross Road for his wife, Anne Bancroft, for many years.
He also produced the comedy Fatso that Bancroft directed. In , Brooks joked that the only genres that he had not spoofed were historical epics and Biblical spectacles. The film was written, produced, and directed by Brooks with narration by Orson Welles. It received mixed critical reviews. Brooks produced and starred in but did not write or direct a remake of Ernst Lubitsch 's film To Be or Not to Be. The film garnered international publicity by featuring a controversial song on its soundtrack — " To Be or Not to Be The Hitler Rap — satirizing German society in the s with Brooks playing Hitler.
The second movie Brooks directed in the s came in the form of Spaceballs , a parody of science fiction , mainly Star Wars. In , Brooks with co-executive producer Alan Spencer made another attempt at television success with the sitcom The Nutt House , which featured Brooks regulars Harvey Korman and Cloris Leachman and was originally broadcast on NBC, but the network only aired five of the eleven episodes produced before canceling the series. People magazine suggested, "anyone in a mood for a hearty laugh couldn't do better than Robin Hood: Men in Tights , which gave fans a parody of Robin Hood , especially Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.
Like Brooks' other films, it is filled with one-liners, and even the occasional breaking of the fourth wall. Life Stinks was a financial and critical failure, but is notable as being the only film that Brooks directed that is neither a parody nor a film about other films or theater. The Twelve Chairs was actually a parody of the original novel.
Brooks has also supplied vocal roles for animation. He voiced Bigweld, the master inventor, in the animated film Robots , and in the later animated film Mr. The musical adaptation of his film The Producers to the Broadway stage broke the Tony record with 12 wins, a record that had previously been held for 37 years by Hello, Dolly!
In early April , Brooks began composing the score to a Broadway musical adaptation of Young Frankenstein , which he says is "perhaps the best movie [he] ever made.
It earned mixed reviews from the critics. Brooks joked about the concept of a musical adaptation of Blazing Saddles in the final number in Young Frankenstein , in which the full company sings, "next year, Blazing Saddles! No creative team or plan has been announced. Brooks is one of the few people who have received an Oscar , an Emmy , a Tony , and a Grammy. His concrete handprints include a six-fingered left hand as he wore a prosthetic finger when making his prints. Brooks was married to Florence Baum from , their marriage ending in divorce.
They had three children: Stephanie, Nicky, and Eddie. In , Brooks credited Bancroft with having been "the guiding force" behind his involvement in developing The Producers and Young Frankenstein for the musical theater, saying of an early meeting with her: "From that day, until her death…we were glued together. I'm basically Jewish. But I think I'm Jewish not because of the Jewish religion at all. I think it's the relationship with the people and the pride I have. The tribe surviving so many misfortunes, and being so brave and contributing so much knowledge to the world and showing courage.
