Directed by Mel Brooks | 1968

With Gene Wilder,Zero Mostel,Dick Shawn,Kenneth Mars,Lee Meredith

Taking Nazi lampoonery to unprecedented extremes, Mel Brooks’ directorial debut follows the exploits of an unsuccessful Broadway producer (played by the blacklisted Mostel, in a ferocious performance), who raises money for his projects by sexing up old ladies, and a jittery, blanket-clutching accountant (Wilder), who advises him that a flop might rake in more money than a hit. The idea inspires their Nazi burlesque Springtime for Hitler, an extravaganza of bad taste featuring a Busby Berkeley-worthy line of leg-kicking SS officers. The Brooks-written Broadway adaptation may have broken Tony Award records, but the film is still unbeatable for its relentless, ingenious brand of shock comedy.
