Apparently, Gene Wilder asked Mel Brooks to direct this picture. Brooks declined, stating that he would find it difficult to direct a screenplay that wasn't his own conception. Gene Wilder said, "I couldn't get Mel to direct it." Brooks did say though that Wilder should go off and make this film, could call upon him day or night and after making this movie, he better "come back home as soon as you're done!" See more »

The Foreign Secretary, Lord Redcliff!
[rehearsing what to say under his breath]
Your Majesty, being inside of your confidence is the greatest joy I've ever known. Ahem...
[handing him the document]
Lord Redcliff, the fate of England is now in your hands.
Your Confidence... being inside of Your Majesty is the greatest single joy I've ever known.
[realizing what he's said, he tosses the document away]
It's alright, Your Majesty! I've got it! I've got it. All's well that ends well!

The other reviewer on this site clearly doesn't understand the subtleties of the comic genius of Gene Wilder (Sigerson Holmes), Madeline Kahn (Jenny Hill, or should I say Bessie Besswood), Marty Feldman (Sgt. Sacker of Scotland Yard) and the rest of the cast of this too little known classic! It's pithy and witty and clever and tips its hat to Conan Doyle at every turn. The Kangaroo Hop, Hop will have you hopping around the living room, and Madeline Kahn outdoes herself. It's right up there with Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein, and I'm waiting oh so patiently for it to be released on DVD! A must see for fans of the subtle and smart in comedy.
