Official Trailer for HBO's 'Mel Brooks: Unwrapped' Documentary Film
"One thing I don't like: is any kind of glitter." HBO has debuted a trailer for a documentary film titled Mel Brooks: Unwrapped, which is debuting streaming starting in December. This biopic doc is a look back at comedy icon Mel Brooks' legendary comedy career in film and television, a feature extension of a segment that British filmmaker Alan Yentob originally produced for the BBC. With Brooks bringing back the classic musical "Young Frankenstein" to the London stage again, Yentob went to talk to Brooks. He originally met Brooks 35 years before, also interviewing him for another segment titled "I Thought I Was Taller" and now they catch up again. We all know Mel Brooks is a certified genius, so spending any time with him and also hearing his stories (and his endless jokes) is always good for the soul. Looking forward to this watching this.
Here's the first official trailer for Alan Yentob's doc Mel Brooks: Unwrapped, from HBO's YouTube:
