Happy Birthday, Mel Brooks.

Mel Brooks (born Melvin Kaminsky)
June 28, 1926

Here’s a cool photo to mark the 92nd birthday of the great Mel Brooks. It’s the director (Brooks) and cast of Young Frankenstein (1974). L-R: Madeline Kahn, Gene Wilder, Mel Brooks, Teri Garr, Kenneth Mars and Marty Feldman. That’s a lot of funny people right there.

Happy birthday, Mr. Brooks. Thanks for all the laughs.

Gene Wilder, RIP.

The great Gene Wilder has passed away. For those of us who grew up in the 70s, he was in so much good stuff — Bonnie And Clyde (1967), The Producers (1968), Willie Wonka And The Chocolate Factory (1971, above), Blazing Saddles (1974), Young Frankenstein (1974) and many more.
