WOW!! It’s the 40th Anniversary of Mel Brooks Young Frankenstein!

Mel Brooks Young F Wall

Over the last couple of weeks members of the paint department have been feverishly sketching and painting  a mural on the back side of Stage 5.  As employees whenever we see a mural project go in to action we start to play a guessing game.  We take breaks during the week just to stop by to see the progress and put our own current assessment on what or who this tribute will be dedicated to.


Mel Brooks Mural

Now that the mural has been completed and the celebration has been planed the BIG REVEAL DAY is here! In Celebration of Comedy Legend Mel Brooks a mural pays tribute to Young Frankenstein.  Stage 5 happens to be where the comedy was originally filmed.



The mural is bigger than life which matches Mel Brooks personality to a T, not only was there a mural dedication but a street as well.  Avenue G  is no more… it’s now and forever more known as Mel Brooks Boulevard!

When Mel Brooks entered through the door of Brain Depositary which happens to be within the mural the crowd went crazy. Mr. Brooks waved and did what he does best, cracked a few jokes in reference to the crowd! Mel, is no stranger on the Fox Lot, he stops by the Fox Dining Room often for lunch and is very personable and witty to anyone who speaks!  The mural and the boulevard have been along time coming but we’re so glad your here!!

Just another wonderful day on the Twentieth Century Fox Lot!
