Reviews
Mine: Funny and telling satire of theatre, greed and the absurd. Gene Wilder is terrific as is Zero Mostel. A must see for any fan of comedy.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Classic piece of insanity stars incomparable Mostel as hard-luck Broadway producer Max Bialystock, who cons meek accountant Wilder into helping him with outrageous scheme: selling 25,000% of a play that's certain to flop, then heading to Rio with the excess cash. One of those rare films that gets funnier with each viewing, highlighted by legendary ``Springtime for Hitler'' production number. Brooks' first feature earned him an Oscar for his screenplay. Listen for his voice dubbed into ``Springtime For Hitler. ''.
