Mel Brooks’ Top 10 Movies on DVD & VHS

Young Frankenstein [DVD](1974) DVD
Mel Brooks' riotous parody of the horror film genre stars Gene Wilder as mad doctor Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced "Fron-ken-steen"), Marty Feldman as hunchbacked Ygor (pronounced "Eye-gor"), and Peter Boyle as the zipper-necked creature. With Cloris Leachman, Madeline Kahn, Teri Garr. 108 min. Widescreen; Soundtracks: English mono, French mono, Spanish mono; Subtitles: English; audio commentary by Brooks; outtakes; bloopers; photo gallery; TV spots; trailers; more.

The Producers [DVD](1968) DVD
Mel Brooks, on his first directorial outing, scores a wild hit. Zero Mostel is a conniving theater producer, Gene Wilder his timid accountant. Together they persuade little old ladies into investing in their play "Springtime for Hitler," which they secretly hope will be a surefire flop. Kenneth Mars and Dick Shawn are marvelous as the play's writer and star. 88 min. Widescreen (Enhanced) and Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English, French, Spanish; documentary; outtakes; photo gallery; theatrical trailers; more.

Blazing Saddles (Collector's Edition) [DVD](1974) DVD
Hollywood Westerns were never the same after director/co-writer Mel Brooks put them through the comedy wringer with this tasteless, hilarious spoof. Can the frontier town of Rockridge cope with the arrival of Cleavon Little as its new--and black--sheriff? With Gene Wilder, Harvey Korman, Madeline Kahn as Lili Von Shtupp, and Alex Karras as the horse-punching Mongo. 93 min. Widescreen (Enhanced) and Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby stereo, French, Spanish; Subtitles: English, French, Spanish; interview; production notes; theatrical trailer. Collector's edition is packaged in a slipcase and contains eight lobby cards, commemorative book, movie frame cell and theatrical poster.

Spaceballs [DVD](1987) DVD
Such a long time ago, in a galaxy so far away, you don't want to think about it...Mel Brooks lines the "space opera" genre up in his sights and fires away! See Winnebagoes in space, the villainy of Pizza the Hut, and Brooks as Yogurt, master of the Schwartz. Rick Moranis, John Candy, Daphne Zuniga, Bill Pullman star. 96 min. Widescreen and Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, French, Spanish mono; Subtitles: French, Spanish; audio commentary by Brooks; "making of" featurette; trailer.

Robin Hood: Men In Tights(1993) VHS
Mel Brooks flings an arrow at the Robin Hood epics of Kevin Costner and Errol Flynn and hits a bull's-eye in the ha-ha department. Cary Elwes is the fearless hero who battles the evil Sheriff of Rottingham (Roger Rees) for the future of England and the hand of Maid Marian (Amy Yasbeck). Richard Lewis, Dom DeLuise and Tracey Ullman co-star. 105 min.

High Anxiety(1977) VHS
With an acute feel for Hitchcock's style, director Mel Brooks provides an uproarious yet loving spoof of the Master's films. Brooks plays a psychiatrist who takes over as head of a sinister sanitarium, inheriting all its troubles. Co-stars Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman, Dick Van Patten, and Cloris Leachman. 94 min.

Life Stinks [DVD](1991) DVD
That's the cry of filthy rich business magnate Mel Brooks when he wagers that he can survive a month on the streets of Skid Row L.A. without his millions and mansion. His hapless brush with homelessness makes for manic comedy in the finest Brooksian fashion. With Lesley Ann Warren, Jeffrey Tambor, Howard Morris. 91 min. Widescreen (Enhanced) and Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital Surround, French Dolby Digital Surround; Subtitles: English, Spanish, French; audio commentary by Brooks, others; featurette; theatrical trailer.

Dracula: Dead And Loving It(1995) VHS
Count on lots of laughs in this Mel Brooks vampire spoof starring Leslie Nielsen as the legendary bloodsucker, out looking for new necks to conquer. Joining in on the fun are Peter MacNichol as the insect-eating Renfield, Harvey Korman as Dr. Seward, and Brooks as Professor Van Helsing; with Steven Weber, Amy Yasbeck, Lysette Anthony. 90 min.

The Twelve Chairs(1970) VHS
Derived from a Russian folk tale, Mel Brooks' fast-paced farce stars Ron Moody as a down-and-out nobleman's son who joins with con artist Frank Langella in a desperate search for a set of 12 chairs, one of which contains a fortune in jewels that once belonged to Moody's family. Dom DeLuise and Brooks, as a tipsy valet, co-star. 94 min.

To Be Or Not To Be(1983) VHS
Riotous remake of the 1942 comedy, with real-life husband and wife Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft (teaming together for the first time on film) as Shakespearean actors caught up in the Polish Resistance against the Nazi occupation of Poland during World War II. Co-stars Tim Matheson, Charles Durning, Jose Ferrer, Christopher Lloyd. 108 min.
