    the producers movie posterTitle: The Producers

    Director: Mel Brooks

    Starring: Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder, Kenneth Mars

    Release Date: Mar. 18, 1968

    Running Time: 90 min

    Genre: Comedy


    The Producers is a hilarious Mel Brooks comedy starring Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder, who play two unsuccessful Broadway producers. In 2001 it was adapted into a Broadway musical, which was re-adapted for film in 2005. Although the original version has only a few songs, I enjoy it nearly as much as the musical remake.

    Plot Summary
    The plot is basically the same as the 2005 musical remake (see #31).

    Mel Brooks
    The Producers was the first of many very funny comedy movies written and directed by Mel Brooks. He also acted in most of them. Here are the others:

    • The Twelve Chairs (1970)
    • Young Frankenstein (1974)
    • Blazing Saddles (1974)
    • Silent Movie (1976)
    • High Anxiety (1977)
    • History of the World, Part I (1981)
    • Spaceballs (1987)
    • Life Stinks (1991)
