THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY All About Me! by Mel Brooks
At 95, Hollywood legend Mel Brooks continues to set standards for comedy across television, film and theatre. Now, for the first time, the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner shares his story. Whether serving in the United States Army in WWII, or grafting as a teenage comedian in the Catskills, Brooks was always mining his experiences for material, always looking for the perfect joke. He would go on to write, direct and star in The Producers, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, High Anxiety and Spaceballs, as well as produce ground-breaking films including The Elephant Man and The Fly. All About Me! offers fans insight into the inspiration behind the ideas for his outstanding collection of boundary-breaking works, and offers details about the many close friendships and collaborations Brooks had, including those with Sid Caesar, Carl Reiner, Gene Wilder, Alfred Hitchcock and – the love of his life – Anne Bancroft.
