    I need to edit my list to include The Big Lebowski

    It's interesting seeing Blazing Saddles and The Producers from Mel Brooks being mentioned. I always felt Young Frankenstein was his funniest offering.

    I'd rather stick a fork in my eye than watch It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World again. Once was more than enough.

    Iím with you. I saw it in a theater when I was a kid, and I thought it was unbearably stupid and unfunny even then.

    I thought about that. Young Frankenstein is his best and most consistent movie, but the funniest parts of the (original) Producers are flat-out funnier.

    It helped seeing it in Cinerama and having Buddy Hackett sitting in the row behind you. He laughed hysterically oops loudly at his every appearance and at nothing else. Apparently he went everyday to that theatre (the one next to The Plaza) to laugh at himself. I was eleven, I think. You would have been eight or nine. Maybe it was too mature for you.

    Yes, the subtle, nuanced acting of Buddy Hackett and Milton Berle, among many others, might have run too deep for me. Or maybe it sucked.

    I do remember learning the expression 'kicked the bucket" from that movie.

    I'll go with it sucked.

    About the only thing I can thankfully recall from that movie was Jimmy Durante saying "it's under the Big W, see"... Dick Shawn calling "Mama I'm coming"... and Ethel Merman being her annoying self.
    (I shudder thinking about what the off-spring of Ethel Merman and Ernest Borgnine would look like if they had reproduced during their short marriage)

    I enjoyed all 3 but Blazing Saddles was so hilariously irreverent the first time I saw it I couldn't stop laughing.

    History of the World Part I had its moments too.
    Space Balls was a nice Star War spoof and High Anxiety was a fun Hitchcock spoof.
