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 »

If you are a fan of Gene Wilder or Mel Brooks' comedies, you will love this movie! Within the first 10 minutes of watching this film, I was in tears. You might need to watch it a few times, as some scenes require multiple viewings in order to pick up on the layer upon layer of comic genius contained within. Absolutely hilarious. Not quite the classic that Young Frankenstein was, but in the same class, to be sure. I doubt it has any mainstream appeal these days, but then again... what does that tell you?
