    Mel Brooks and his late wife Anne Bancroft were such an inspiring couple. I
    hope in my life to have one moment of love like they shared. Just
    re-watched the whole 8 seasons of Curb your Enthusiasm, season 4 remains
    one of my fav – mainly due to the Mel, the finale of that season was epic
    with Anne + Him.
