Today’s Gold Box Deal at Amazon is The Mel Brooks Collection on DVD. That’s eight fabulous Mel Brooks films for just $39.99, and if you don’t think Young Frankenstein is one of the greatest comedies of our time, well, I don’t think we can be friends anymore.

(Unless you prefer Blazing Saddles. I might allow that.)


  1. What if your top 10 list includes Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, AND The History of the World Part 1? Can we still be friends?

    (although I’m not mentioning that Monty Python and the Holy Grail is in there too, just in case that’s a deal breaker) 🙂

  2. My husband and I will be your best friends, Beth!

    Have you seen Frau Blucher (AKA Cloris Leachman) on Dancing With The Stars? She called Carrie Ann a B*tch last night- there’s rampant censoring of her language. She’s flashed her cleavage at Len, and whipped her leg up on the table for Bruno.

    This is an awesome deal, but we already have the movies.

  3. Okay, okay… if we’re talking Top 10, I think we’re good.

    Cloris Leachman rocks.

  4. Big fan of Frau Blücher. Would you like some Warm Meeelk? Some Ovaltine? Good deal eh! I think I might have to be all over the Amazon Prime! THanks for the heads up!

  5. It took a while (we’re talking years here!) but Blazing Saddles has finally grown on me. We’ve seen it so many times, my husband and I are always quoting lines to each other (“the sherriff is ANRRRR!” … “he says the sherriff is near!”)

  6. mel brooks is a genius. if i didn’t already have almost all of his flicks i’d be all over this. beth, can i be your friend? lol!

  7. oh! and i can’t leave without saying this: “treasure! bath tub! it’s a treasure bath!!”

  8. My husband’s and mine (sigh…is that even grammatically correct?) first date was a Mel Brooks movie. And if that doesn’t describe our senses of humor, nothing will. 🙂
