Watch: Fantastic Full PBS Documentary 'Mel Brooks: Make a Noise'
Earlier this year we pointed out a trailer for a new documentary in the PBS documentary series American Masters called Mel Brooks: Make a Noise. Featuring many entertainment veterans like Carl Reiner, Joan Rivers and Cloris Leachman, along with other staple names like Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, the doc a takes an in-depth look at the prolific comedian and longtime writer/director of such films as Spaceballs, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and more. The film already premiered on PBS over a week ago, but now you can watch the whole doc online in full, and it's definitely worth your time.
Here's the full PBS documentary Mel Brooks: Make a Noise from PBS (US viewers only - sorry!):
Mel Brooks: Make a Noise journeys through Brooks’ early years in the creative beginnings of live television with Sid Caesar on Your Show of Shows to the film genres he so successfully satirized in Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, High Anxiety, and Spaceballs and the groundbreaking Broadway musical version of his first film, The Producers. Robert Trachtenberg is writer, director, producer, and editor of the documentary which features interviews with Carl Reiner, Joan Rivers, Nathan Lane, Cloris Leachman, Matthew Broderick, Tracey Ullman and more. The documentary just premiered on PBS on May 20, 2013.
