Mel Brooks’ hilarious film about a washed-up director and his buddies who attempt to make a comeback with a latter-day silent movie!
Mel Funn (Mel Brooks), Marty Eggs (Marty Feldman) and Dom Bell (Dom DeLuise) star as aspiring filmmakers with a million-dollar idea that goes completely against the modern grain: make a silent film! They try to recruit several A-list stars to increase marketability, all while the studio’s creditors try to sink the movie. The recognizable ensemble also includes Bernadette Peters and Sid Caesar, with cameos by Anne Bancroft, Liza Minnelli, Burt Reynolds, James Caan, Marcel Marceau, and Paul Newman as themselves.
The film itself contains only one word of dialogue. The live soundtrack is provided by the Eastern Massachusetts Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society!
Run time: 87 minutes
