That is the movie!
Did You Know?
Before this remake was made, Mel Brooks
, a Jewish-American comedian, had been famous for, amongst other things, for making fun of Adolf Hitler
, Nazis and Nazi Germany. His earlier film The Producers
(1967) parodied them in a play called "Springtime for Hitler", which was that movie's working title as well. In this movie, Brooks' voice can be heard singing the line "Don't be stupid/Be a schmarty/Come and join the Nazi Party" during the "Springtime for Hitler" number. For the Broadway musical version, he repeats this task, with the live actor lip-synching to a recording of Brooks' voice. The Producers
(1967) was also the inspiration for the title of U2
's album, "Achtung Baby". See more
