Mel Brooks at American Cinematheque's Aero Theatre
Mel Brooks was once quoted as saying, "Anybody can direct. There are only 11 good writers." Then there must be a hell of a lot of crappy writers with picket signs in this town. Brooks is definitely one of the good ones (we'll just forget about that sorry Broadway version of Young Frankenstein, though). Our Mr. Brooks will discuss his films between screenings of Blazing Saddles and History of the World: Part 1. Fri., Jan. 25, 7:30 p.m., 2008
