Reviews
Mine: Uneven Mel Brooks offering, but there is some very funny stuff here. More a series of skits than a movie.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Narrated by Orson Welles. Scattershot comedy wanders from the Stone Age to Roman Empire to French Revolution, dispensing gags ranging from hilarious to hideous. After a while momentum's gone, and it all just lies there, despite efforts of a large comic cast. Caesar scores highest as a caveman in opening scenes. Hines' film debut. Panavision.
