The Producers: 50th Anniversary Edition (1967)
Thursday 6th September 2018
Mel Brooks's comedy masterpiece, The Producers - widely regarded as one of the funniest films ever - has been stunningly restored in 4K and will be available on DVD and Blu-ray 10th September 2018 fom StudioCanal.
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?
Directed by legendary filmmaker Mel Brooks (Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles), and starring Zero Mostel (The Front), Gene Wilder (Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory) and Estelle Winwood (Murder By Death), The Producers was adapted for Broadway in 2001, starring Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, and went on to win a record 12 Tony Awards.
StudioCanal completed a brand new 4k restoration from a new scan of the original negative.
