Nice poll.
An IMDb Champion named Dan Dassow or Peter will come along here in a little while to help you complete this poll for you.
It is missing a link back to this page.
He also will have other tips for you too.

My Choice
Blazing Saddles.

great poll...tough choice...

i could easily say 'all of the above', but...

it would probably be between 'silent movie' and 'high anxiety'...

Thank you, Dan, for your prompt response but I found the process confusing in regards to putting up the discussion link after I posted the suggestion. I tried to find a place to include the link but to no avail.

Maybe this will help.

Patrick,

Thank of adding the discussion link. As Ed points out above, it works properly.

However, you still need a question.

Please edit your list to add your original question ...
Which Mel Brooks movie would you want to watch right now?

... or potentially one of the following questions:

Which of these Mel Brooks movies would you watch to brighten you mood?

Which of these Mel Brooks movies do you consider the funniest?

Which of these Mel Brooks movies do you consider his comic masterpiece?

= = =

I've been a Mel Brooks fan since he was a writer for and produced Get Smart and played the 2000 Year Old Man. Young Frankenstein (1974) is one of my favorite films.

Blazing Saddles is an all time classic, although my favourite and the film I get the most laughs will have be the sci-fi parody Spaceballs.

Hi Patrick and welcome to the poll board! : )

This is a good idea for a poll. Mel Brooks deserves a good poll like this. 

A shorter title tends to be better, both in terms of being short and punchy and easy to remember and also in terms of formatting, so I'd consider going back to your original title. Right now, what you are using as a title is a perfect question for the intro., though, so I'd move the following down into the description field, above your "link-back" ("Discuss here"):

Which of these Mel Brooks movies do you consider his comic masterpiece?

Can't believe Robin Hood - Men In Tights wasn't on the list.  That is the one that would have gotten my vote.

It is a shame you did not add all the Mel Brooks films, besides Robin Hood which I like, you are missing Dracula: Death and Loving It, which I know many don't like but I think is great. With room for all options there was no need to exclude them.

In any case my vote is for his best film, Young Frankesntein. I can't believe it is losing to Spaceballs, one of the most boring and at times disgusting comedies I have seen.

I reckon Get Smart should be in there too.(TV show, not the Steve Carell movie). It's 1 tv show that you actually laugh out loud at
