Memorable Quotes and Dialog:

"You know who I used to be' Max Bialystock, king of Broadway. Six shows running at once! Lunch at Delmonico's, two-hundred-dollar suits...Look at me now. Look at me now! I'm wearing a cardboard belt! I used to have thousands of investors begging, pleading to put their money in a Max Bialystock production. Look at my investors now...Hundreds of little old ladies stopping off at Max Bialystock's office to grab a last thrill on the way to the cemetery."
  - Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) to Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder)
"Don't be stupid, be a smarty. Come and join the Nazi Party."
  - lyrics from the opening number of SPRINGTIME FOR HITLER
"That's our Hitler!"
  - Bialystock after seeing L.S.D.'s (Dick Shawn) audition for SPRINGTIME FOR HITLER

Academy Awards 1968 - Best Original Screenplay: Mel Brooks

Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 12/06/2002
"...The film itself shines in a gorgeous new print..."
Premiere - 12/01/2003
"...[B]efore Mel Brooks, no one had taken a genre and made as much savage fun of it in one movie comedy as a writer-director could..."
Uncut - 11/01/2004
"Brooks' play-within-a-film structure is fiendishly clever..."
Sight and Sound - 01/01/2005
"[T]he screen is dominated by Zero Mostel's rapacious turn as washed-up producer Max Bialystock."

Plot Synopsis:

THE PRODUCERS is a wacked-out comedy classic about a rapacious Broadway producer who plans to stage a guaranteed flop--and then pocket the backers' money when the production fails. There's one thing the partners didn't count on, though: the play becoming a runaway hit.
