How did I miss this thread?
I'm a huge fan of Mel Brooks' films. I love and own, Blazing Saddles, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Dracula: Dead and Loving It, Spaceballs, and Silent Movie.

Remember, a toll is a toll and a roll is a roll. We don't get no rolls if we don't get no tolls!

Blazing Saddles is one of my favourites, so many laugh out loud scenes in it. Young Frankenstein is a close second for me, Putting on the Ritz being a highlight and the simple - Hump? gag.

Just looking on imdb and it surprised me how few films Gene Wilder has actually been in too.

Spaceballs is another good one.

But I would say Mel Brooks was the pioneer for the spoof movie.

Mel was spoofing Star Wars before George spoofed it with The Phantom Menace.

Spaceballs is my favourite.

One of my old threads got bump and I wasn't the one to bump it? Now that's unusual.

Actually funny it should get bumped as just yesterday I finally found a DVD copy of Dracula: Dead and Loving It to replace the VHS I used to have. And the other day I was walking through the Rock Ridge precinct at WB Movieworld (the local Warner Bros studios and theme park). I actually found a Hedy Lamarr sign that I didn't notice before.

BLAZING SADDLES. I frekin' LOVE that movie. Four stars all the way. I laugh every time I see it. I especially love the scene where they've built the tollbooth and when the bad guys come up, one of 'em says "We're gonna need a s**tload of dimes!" Love it! And then there is The Producers with Springtime for Hitler. Jesus, I love Mel Brooks.

I always thought Mel Brooks should have done an Indiana Jones spoof similar to Spaceballs is to star wars.

The closest spoof to Indiana Jones I know of is Romancing the Stone.

It's not even a spoof. It's a legit film.

While Spaceballs is the first in a slump that also includes Robin Hood: Men in Tights and Dracula: Dead and Loving It.

I assumed he was talking about Romancing the Stone being a legit movie. I agree but it was leaning toward a spaceball type version of Indiana Jones.
