One of the greats. Everything Mel Brooks has made remains funny throughout generations, but especially this zany masterpiece. Since the entirety of the movie mimmicks a certain time, it is thusly timeless. The director, cinematographer, and production designer obviously went to great lengths to achieve that atmosphere of a much older era in film. This magnanamously contributes to the audacity of the comedy. Wilder’s furious insanity is his trademark that has never spoiled, but all the players are distinctly memorable so I will now shower them with adjectives: The wild eyed genius of Marty Feldman, the grimly comical Cloris Leachman, the interpretive hulking of Peter Boyle, the inventive physical performance of Kenneth Mars, and the sexually charged and ruthlessly funny work of Teri Garr and Madeline Kahn all combine to make this film as tremendous as this sentence. Endlessly funny and so very memorable.
