[[HeAlsoDid He also produced]] Creator/DavidLynch's drama ''Film/TheElephantMan'' and Creator/DavidCronenberg's remake of the horror film ''Film/TheFly'' but removed his name because he didn't want people to think they were comedies.

He also [[PissTakeRap rapped]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yu2NqfISm9k as Hitler once]]. In an interview for ''Series/SixtyMinutes'', he stated that his life's goal was to [[AdolfHitlarious reduce Hitler to a figure of such ridiculousness]] that no-one would ever take his ideas seriously again. (If the numerous Tonys that ''Film/TheProducers'' won are any indication, it's working.) Being both Jewish and a UsefulNotes/WorldWarII veteran, if anyone has NWordPrivileges to joke about UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler it's him.

He met Anne Bancroft on a talk show and then bribed a woman in order to create a MeetCute with her. Proving that being GenreSavvy has its perks, he was somehow able to convince MrsRobinson to become [[UglyGuyHotWife Mrs.]] [[HappilyMarried Brooks]]. This resulted in [[Literature/WorldWarZ Max Brooks]], probably one of the foremost experts on how to repel and survive the oncoming ZombieApocalypse. He has three other children from his first marriage to Florence Baum, which only lasted a few years. He attributes this to both of them being too young to know what they were getting into, and they've remained on good terms in all the decades since.
