There’s Nothing Better Than Watching Mel Brooks Tell Gene Wilder Stories

Mel Brooks, who collaborated with Wilder on such classics as Blazing Saddles, The Producers and Young Frankenstein, visited the tonight show to speak about his late friend and collaborator. Brooks touches on the birth of Wilder’s idea for Young Frankenstein on the set of Blazing Saddles, as well as the tearful moment when Brooks told Wilder he would be playing Leo Bloom in The Producers.

The whole thing is simply wonderful.
