The Mel Brooks 1968 classic. Not bad for a director’s debut! Washed-up producer Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) and accountant Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) join forces for a sure-fire theatrical flop, while laughing all the way to the bank and a quick exit to Rio. At least, that’s the game plan. Oy gevalt! Relive Springtime for Hitler and Brooks’ trademark hilarity in the Oscar-winning original movie behind the mega-hit Broadway play.
