History Of The World, Part I DVD
SKU ID #309764
"It's good to be the king." Mel Brooks turns his love of film parody to Hollywood historical epics with "History of the World, Part I" (1981). This omnibus comedy finds humor across the centuries, from Sid Caesar's hapless caveman to a song-and-dance number about the Spanish Inquisition. Brooks plays multiple roles, including a "stand-up philosopher" in the Roman Empire and both the French king and his low-class lookalike in a chapter about the French Revolution. Joining the fun are Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman, Dom DeLuise, Gregory Hines and Orson Welles as the narrator. Look out for previews of "History of the World, Part II," a sequel that has not been filmed. Yet.
