Mel Brooks celebrates his 91st birthday today (June 28), and without him, it’s difficult to picture what the comedy landscape would look like.

His comedic work utilizing both parody and satire has influenced countless writers and performers and has stood the test of time.  While he’s worked in television (notably creating the classic Get Smart), his films are definitely his crowning achievement.

But which film is his best?
