Mel Brooks: The Insane & The Bizarre
Mel Brooks is here to find the insane and the bizarre in the commonplace.
American Masters opens its 23rd season with a stirring profile of singer Sam Cooke (1931–64). Before Otis Redding, before Motown, and before Aretha Franklin became the Queen of Soul, Sam Cooke put the spirit of the black church into popular music, creating a new American sound. He had a silky voice and good looks; he was charming and brazen. Doors opened for him, bringing his unique gospel — “Good News,” “Wonderful World,” “You Send Me,” “Change Is Gonna Come,” and more — to the airwaves. Actor Danny Glover narrates.
