Christmas Gift Idea: The Mel Brooks Collection

Today, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is releasing a Blu-Ray collection of 9 Mel Brooks films. The set includes the following classic and hilarious comedies:

The Twelve Chairs (1970)

Blazing Saddles (1974)

Young Frankenstein (1974)

Silent Movie (1976)

High Anxiety (1977)

History Of The World Part I (1981)

To Be Or Not To Be (1983)

Spaceballs (1987)

Robin Hood: Men In Tights (1993)

These 9 films are all classics, and all of them worth owning in HD. Each of the discs is packed with bonus material. The set also includes a beautiful 120-page hardcover book about Mel Brooks, with info on each of his films.

Mel Brooks has directed 11 feature films, so the only three this set doesn’t include is The Producers (1968), Life Stinks (1991) and Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995). To Be or Not to Be was directed by Alan Johnson.

For any movie or comedy lover on your list, this would make a great Christmas gift.
