This making of documentary includes interviews, photographs, and behind-the-scenes footage, There is also a still of a moment that was cut -the Siegfried oath between Franz Liebkind, Max and Leo upon signing their contract to get the play's rights; the outtake for the explosion; and an alternate take for the Prisoners of Love song. Paul Mazursky does an impression of Peter Sellers, who saw a screening of the film and placed a trade ad to help publicize it. Sellers was originally cast as Leo, and Mel Brooks doesn't fully explain why he did not do the part. Rather, Brooks turned to Gene Wilder, who was appearing in Mother Courage on Broadway with Brooks' girlfriend at the time, Anne Bancroft. Wilder tells how he wrote Leo's speech in the courtroom scene as Brooks had given him no dialog. Andreas Voutinas tells his Carmen Giya was meant to look like Rasputin and act like Marilyn Monroe, but Andreas was afraid after-wards he would never work again. He did, also for Brooks. Yellow is featured in the film's design eg. walls in Max' office, Ulla's dress, because Brooks thought the color yellow was funny, and Lee Meredith re-enacts Ulla's dancing - which is shown in split screen. There is also mention of the later Broadway musical in the documentary's end credits, which Brooks says was the idea of David Geffen.
