Did you know that Mel Brooks shot scenes for the 1976 feature film “Silent Movie” at UCI?  The all star cast included Mel Brooks, Dom DeLuise, Bernadette Peters, Paul Newman, and even a special guest appearance from the famous french mime, Marcel Marceau.  A hilarious wheelchair race scene is filmed on UCI campus.  The chairs fly through Aldrich park and speed by Gateway and Langson Library.   If you are interested in seeing the UCI campus featured in this Mel Brooks classic, please check out “Silent Movie”.
