Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) is a washed up Broadway producer when timid accountant Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) inadvertently reveals that, under the right circumstances, a producer could make more money with a flop than a hit. Together they come up with a sure-fire disaster waiting to happen – “Springtime for Hitler”. Unfortunately everybody loves it. Winner of the Oscar® for Best Screenplay.
40 years since it was originally released, a hit broadway show, remake and Curb Your Enthusiasm storyline later and the original version of The Producers is still as fresh and anarchic as ever.
