Comedy legend Mel Brooks attends his hand and footprint ceremony Brooks, the writer, producer and actor responsible for the classic movie comedies The Producers, Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein, sank his hands and feet into cement in front of the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood - a ritual followed by decades of movie legends. He said he left the unique mark "just in case somebody from Des Moines, Iowa, says 'Harry! Harry! Look, Mel Brooks has six fingers on his left hand!'" The ceremony was held in conjunction with the release of Young Frankenstein on Blu-ray, to mark the movie's 40th anniversary.
