I was expecting just eight minutes or so on the phone talking with Mel Brooks about his new DVD/CD/Book Collection "The Incredible Mel Brooks: An Irresistible Collection of Unhinged Comedy." But as you'll hear in my You Tube video above, when Mel Brooks wants to talk, you don't try to stop him (not that I wanted to!).
I had to toil mightily to cut our 45-minute chat down to three short segments. In this part, Mel tells me his favorite Mel Brooks movies (and they don't include Blazing Saddles or The Producers).
