Interview Highlights On meeting Mel Brooks, with whom he would later work on The Producers, Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein I was miscast in that production [of Mother Courage and Her Children] … but it was with Anne Bancroft, whose boyfriend at the time was Mel Brooks, and that made my I can’t say my day, it made my life, in a way. I met Mel backstage in Anne’s dressing room. He was wearing one of those pea coats, pea jackets that were made famous by the Merchant Marines, and I admired it and he said, “You know, they used to call this a urine jacket, but it didn’t sell.” I laughed and he laughed and after we saw each other several times he said, “Would you like to come to Fire Island and spend the weekend with Anne and me? I’d like to read the first 30 pages of this movie I’m writing called Springtime for Hitler.” I said, “I’d like that very much,” and I went there one June weekend and he read me the first 30 pages of what was later called The Producers. On auditioning for Zero Mostel, who played Max Bialystock in The Producers Mel said, “I love you, but Zero doesn’t know you, and he has the right of approval of whoever is going to play Leo Bloom, so come to the office and you’ll do a reading with him.” So I went to the office on a Thursday or Friday morning and knocked on the door and Mel opened it and I saw Zero Mostel in the background and he said, “Come on in, come on in. Gene, this is Z; Z, this is Gene.” And I put out my hand to shake hands with him, and he took my hand [and] he pulled me up to his face, and he gave me a kiss on the lips.
