Watch: Trailer for American Masters Doc 'Mel Brooks: Make a Noise'
Rarely do we take the time to feature items from television, but when we do, it's because of some sort of great tie-in to the world of cinema, or because it's worthy of the same attention that films on the big screen deserve. PBS has one such project as part of their American Masters documentary series, focusing on distinctively American people that made our culture, the people that changed our history. Every now and then this includes some of cinema's most iconic minds, and in May, we'll get to see Mel Brooks: Make a Noise, a documentary taking a look at the prolific comedian and longtime writer/director of such films as Spaceballs, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and more. Now we can see the first trailer below!
Here's the first trailer for the documentary Mel Brooks: Make a Noise, directly from USA Today:
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 will premiere on May 20th, 2013 on PBS.
