The Open Court Vol 50 dBut a weekend rescreening of Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein revealed them as films thato not survive the test of time Except for a few classic bits Frankenstein now comes across as unfunny and a long slog Saddles meanwhile includes many funny sketches while inducing suirms as an out of A Teacher S Offering date movie The two films released forty five years agoDuring his career Brooks wanted the approval of critics while resenting their power and opinions He eschewed the critics and intellectuals while embracing John Wayne and Lawrence Welk country And this set him apart from Woody Allen Brooks feels he fell short in his career He wanted to make comedy based on pathos and real life writing scripts around characters and the human condition Instead ego got in the way Anne Bancroft meanwhile earned critical accoladesuring her career including her film roles in The Miracle Worker The Graduate and 84 Charing Cross Road where she played Helene Hanff who wrote the memoir As life marched on Brooks became a stalwart at funerals weeping then cheering people although he is phobic about illness and hospitals It s empty spaces said Mel Brooks when asked about the hardest thing to accept while aging He s ninety two That space used to be filled with the people you grew up with the people you love your family They re all gone That s the toughest People love people who make them laugh writes Patrick McGilligan the author Mel Brooks turned his invented identity into a brand name of laughter Many people Poems did not reply to inuirieseclined interviews or spoke anonymously or off the record because they feared the temper or litigiousness of Brooks writes McGilligan in the appendix Also especially in the early chapters Brooks makes claims that cannot be verified today leading to such phrases as no evidence exists McGilligan gets credit for uestioning the veracity of probable hokum A four star book about a three star subject Although long at six hundred pages I enjoyed it The well written story gives us the back story of Mel Brooks as well as his early The Scripture Club Of Valley Rest days of television comedy which I find interesting Through Brooks story we intersect with many others who made us laugh Recently I read ROBIN by David Itzkoff a biography thatescribed the comic genius and troubled life of Robin Williams The book was thorough and replete with explanations of why Williams turned out as he Irish Wit And Humor did and the role comedy played in his life There are few people who can approach Williams ability to transform themselves intoifferent characters and employ improvisation One who might approach Williams talent is Mel Brooks the subject of a wonderful new biography by Patrick McGilligan entitled FUNNY MAN Brooks background and early life stems from the wave of Russian Jewish immigration to the United States at the turn of the 20th century Thousands would pass through or remain on the lower east side of Manhattan or move across the Williamsburg Bridge into Brooklyn as Brooks family Willoughby did in 1917 McGilliganescribes his subject as a pampered child as the youngest of four brothers and his role in the family seemed to be to make everyone laugh All was not laughter as at the age of two and a half Brooks father passed away leaving A VOID IN HIS LIFE THAT void in his life that affect him throughout adulthoodMcGilligan goes on to Ezekiel Wilson Mundy describe Brooks life in minuteetail as he ponders his future leading up to World War II a turning point as he will wind up as an entertainment specialist Though he passed through areas of combat with the US Army as it made its way toward Germany Brooks was considered a barracks character throughout its way toward Germany Brooks was considered a barracks character throughout war McGilligan Mater Amoris Et Doloris does a workman like jobescribing Brooks transition from a grunt who entertained his comrades to scheduling touring entertainment for the USO hosting programs and even taking the stage with his comedy act By 1946 Brooks found his enlistment extended an extra year where he continued his entertainment responsibilitiesMcGilligan s narrative is replete with numerous watershed moments that altered the course of Brooks career personal life attempts at psychological analysis to explain Brooks actions and a careful rendering of each of his films McGilligan s approach is fascinating though at times the constant entrance into the world of psychobabble can be annoying Important turning points are many and the key to Brooks career is his association with Sid Ceasar Bulletin De La Soci T Royale De Botanique De Belgique Vol 52 dating back to the late 1940s Brooks would become an integral part of Club Ceasar a group of writers and laterirectors and producers who wrote for the Show of Shows and the Ceasar Hour in the 1950s The group includes Larry Gelbart Carl Reiner Mel Tonkin Lucille Kallen and Howard Morris McGilligan takes the reader inside the writer s room called the jockstrap for the Ceasar s programs and the mayhem which was a Later Poems Of Alexander Anderson Surfaceman daily occurrence He explores the relationships among the writers and how Brooks fit in on a personal and professional level We witness Brooks obnoxiousness crudeness temper rudeness but also his overwhelming comedic talent Kallen wouldescribe writing scripts was like throwing a magnetized piece of a puzzle into a room with the other pieces racing toward it Reiner would always play his straight man and try and keep him out of trouble and their friendship would last for ecades as he always indulged Brooks outbursts Of course McGilligan launches into an explanation of how Ceasar was a father figure for Brooks who was trying to fill the void in his
