The Producers: Special Edition

5

Peter Sellers was so moved by The Producers that he placed an advertisement in Variety referring to it as "the ultimate movie." History proved him right, with a 36-year standing ovation that, thanks to the current hit stage version, rumbles on to this very day. From its note-perfect opening act, in which deposed Broadway emperor Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) strongarms yapping accountant Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) into aiding his scheme to stage the worst musical ever, through to the eventual opening of Nazi parody Springtime For Hitler, The Producers still endures as one of modern cinema's untouchables.
