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 TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on Monday — a ritual followed by decades of movie legends.
But Brooks, who's 88, wore a fake sixth finger on his left hand.
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!'"
