A great classic

It's really funny and great idea for a plot, and Mostel-Wilder makes a great duo. Just a misreading of the idea (as if it were the spirit of the film and not a plot) made this a critic flop in the beinning.

Down-on-his-luck theatrical producer Max Biyalistok is forced to romance rich old ladies to finance his efforts. When timid accountant Leo Bloom reviews Max's 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."

"Mel Brooks's first film celebrates 50 years with a rare cinematic screening. Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder are superb as the Broadway producer and accountant who work out they will make more money from a flop than a hit and so try everything they can to find a losing formula. Still as bad taste, as it was on its first release, seeing it on the big screen is like watching it for the first time. Sharp, funny and the most underrated screen double act ever. Oh, and then there's Springtime For Hitler."
