When I saw the opening title sequence with the Universal logo spinning and Marty popping it up like a baloon I cracked myself up. I didn't know any of the actors when I first saw it when I was younger but as time passed by I began to realize how important Marty was to worldwide comedy. He was so funny on YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN but here is HIS own film and he can do whatever he feels like. I love Mel Brook's work but I this film is one of the first film-spoofs like TOP SECRET! and HOT SHOTS! The sequence where Marty escapes out of prision is a homage to Charlie Chaplin, doubtlessly. Michael York is a young hero but the gags all fall onto Marty. He's the funny one and gets all the attention. York is the sidekick, really. I really don't know how they managed to get a cross-eyed kid to play Marty as a child but the resemblance is remarkable. James Earl Jones is fantastic too as a desert bandit. Highly recommended for a few laughs!!!!!!!!!
