One of Mel Brooks funniest comedies. Brooks who wrote and directed this farce stars Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder as producers who staged a awful musical which is titled (and I'm not making this up) "Springtime For Hilter: a Gay Romp with Adolf and Eva at Berchtesgaden."
The planned to closed the show after one performance in order to make money, but then the people who saw this so-called awful musical keep coming back, so the pair began to look for other ways to bring the musical down. Believe me the film is very funny. So funny that Mel Brooks brought home his Oscar for best screenplay. 33 years later Brooks made it as a Broadway musical, which won 10 Tonys.
My advice: See the film first than see the broadway musical. You can't go wrong.
