Product Overview

"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-Mell 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 (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 surprise smash hit, they find themselves in the middle of a Broadway blitzkrieg!

Reviews
ReviewSource The Village Voice
Review As for Mel Brooks's 1968 air-burst rip The Producers, no bets were hedged and no throats left unthrottled... Brooks's magnum opus is still a ferocious gale of bulldozing Jewish mockery, dominated by Zero Mostel's comb-over juggernaut... In fact, the more time passes the more combustible Brooks's burlesque of Nazism and the post-war remnants of old-school Jewish showbiz seems.
