CGiii Comment

Aaaaaaah when Mel Brooks was funny-ish.

When Gene Wilder was so nauseating that it would be a delight to see his head on a plate in Hannibal Lecter's dining room.

It would have been 'shocking' when released - now, no longer.

It has its moments...but, they are brief and rare.

The(ir) Blurb...

Down-on-his-luck theatrical producer Max Bialystock is forced to romance rich old ladies to finance his efforts. When timid accountant Leo Bloom reviews Max's accounting books, the two hit upon a way to make a fortune by producing a sure-fire flop. The play which is to be their gold mine? "Springtime for Hitler."
