The little boy that appears as the character "Rifka's Son" is none other than Max Brooks...the only child of Anne Bancroft & Mel Brooks. Thus is the only Mel Brooks film Max has appeared in. See more »
At about an hour in, a flipped shot of Schultz (Christopher Lloyd) puts his armband on the wrong arm. See more »
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 »
He revisits this classic film and makes it even crazier than the original, adding a lot of new stuff... (there are 3 numbers where Mel dances and sings, there are clowns, jews and a homosexual hairdresser pursued by the evil and stupid nazis.)
All the actors in this movie, and I mean ALL, are just terrific.
I´d like to state that this is not a remake of the Ernst Lubistch classic, (at least that´s my opinion), to me this is a tribute to the great director and his masterpiece.
I´ve watched the Lubistch "To be or not to be" a lot of times for it´s one of my favorite films, and the Mel Brooks version is completely different from the original. It was made the Brooks way, which I really adore.
So watch this film, you´ll have a lot of fun and won´t stop laughing.
Oh, just one more thing...
This is an asking to 20th Century Fox: When you decide to release this movie in DVD, include the absolutely amazing video-clip: "To be or not to be - Hitler Rap" performed by Mel Brooks please!!. I can assure you that a lot of people will buy it just for that.
