Description
Mel Brooks turned his love of film parody to Hollywood historical epics in this episodic laughfest from 1981. Its humor spans centuries, from Sid Caesar's hapless caveman to a song-and-dance number about the Spanish Inquisition. Brooks plays multiple roles, including a "stand-up philosopher" in the Roman Empire and both the French king and his plebian lookalike in a sequence about the French Revolution. Joining the fun are comedy legends Madeline Kahn (Empress Nympho), Harvey Korman (Count de Monet), Dom DeLuise (Emperor Nero), and Cloris Leachman (Madame Defarge), while Orson Welles narrates. Bonus features include the original theatrical trailer.

"Brooks' combination of slapstick humor and witty one liners still elicit chuckles today."—DVD Verdict

"Hearty laughs.... The cast seems to have had a ball."—Variety
