The Producers: 50th Anniversary Restoration
Starring: Gene Wilder, Zero Mostel
Duration: 105 min
Mel Brooks’ uproarious Oscar-winning comedy The Producers returns to cinemas in a stunning 50th anniversary 4K restoration on August 5th, including a special Mel Brooks introduction from Turner Classic Movies.
Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) is a washed up Broadway producer forced to romance old ladies to finance his plays. When timid accountant Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) is brought in to do his books, he inadvertently reveals to Bialystock that under the right circumstances, a producer could make more money with a flop than a hit. Bialystock cajoles Bloom into helping him achieve this end and together they come up with what they consider to be a sure-fire disaster waiting to happen – a musical version of Adolf and Eva’s love story entitled ‘Springtime For Hitler’. But is it possible that they might actually have the most unlikely hit of all time on their hands?
