In the credits at the end, Anne Bancroft's name first appears in parenthesis, until Mel Brooks "waves" them off. This is a reference to a poster in the movie that has Anna Bronski's name in parenthesis. See more »
I was so pleased to come across this movie on tv, and found it delightful every step of the way even though it does go "over the top" in its script. I could almost sense Sid Caesar's presence in the group but he was not a part of it here, which I regret.
Although the subject matter is serious enough, as it deals with the Nazi military and their activities, there is so much humor to be found in the foibles of citizens and soldiers alike that we are swept up in the steady action.
Mel Brook and Anne Bancroft carry the plot along splendidly. I don't think Jose Ferrer had been in many comedies so it was a pleasure to see him take part in this type of film.
Good entertainment and full of action.
