I actually have zero idea of what this movie is even about. There are movies in the Mel Brooks collection that I’ve seen many times and there are others that I’ve seen not at all. This is one of the latter. Let’s get into it.
This one actually wasn’t written by Mel Brooks and is, in fact, a remake of a 1942 film of the same name so that probably does a good job of explaining why it is so different. Not doing research really gets my personal reception of the movie to the forefront but also makes mistakes like this happen. I didn’t call out all of the jokes, there were several and they don’t all land, but there’s a good one in the movie poster.
I also found out that Mel Brooks made a Hilter Rap.
