Blind Item #3 - Reader Blind Item

This director/writer/actor/producer is known for a number of high grossing comedies. He got his start on a show that also gave a start to a lot of successful comedic writing and/or directing careers.

Despite a seemingly long lasting happy marriage, this multi-talent always kept a few women on payroll for “services”.  He liked blondes, specifically women that resembled a character in one of his earliest films.  That film was later both made into a Broadway production and then remade as a film.

Melvin - good one! i think you are correct. The Producers was made twice and on Broadway.

So Mel liked blondes, seems to fit the pattern.

I thought the marriage was a bearding arrangement with Bancrort

Deffo Mel Brooks. Who most people forget - on this weekend of all weekends, was a veteran who landed at Normandy and fought hand to hand at the Battle of the Bulge. He gets a pass for that never mind his wonderful movies.

This blind sounds like written in past tense so probably Mel Brooks since he's really not active anymore (although still alive.)

My Dad took me to see Silent Movie. I think I was 9. There's the scene when Bernadette Peters' poster was revealed in the boardroom and the table rose. My Dad laughed so hard. I told him I didn't get it. He said I would some day.

My first thought was Mel for this.

I was fortunate enough to see a Young Frankenstein screening where Mel Brooks did a Q and A session afterwards. He was hilarious. Someone asked if he wears boxers or briefs. Mel answered "Depends!"
