"Fast-Paced [and] Very Entertaining!" -Variety
A "startling, stunning, outrageous [and] breathtaking debut" (Los Angeles Times) from acclaimed writer/director Mel Brooks (Young Frankenstein, Spaceballs), this Oscar winning comedy combines "pure pell-Mel lunacy [and] wild, ad-lib energy [into an] uproariously funny" (Time) film!
Low rent Broadway producer Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) and his high-strung accountant Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) discover that, with the help of a few gullible investors, they can make more money on a flop than on a hit! Armed with the worst show ever written (Springtime for Hitler) and an equally horrific cast, this double dealing duo is banking on disaster. But when their sure-to-offend musical becomes a smash hit, they find themselves in the middle of a Broadway blitzkrieg!
