Springtime for Hitler (video)

With Russia going all retro and embracing its Soviet past in Ukraine, in addition to embracing neo-Nazis at home, and with Germany remaining far too cozy with Russia, especially ex-chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, it seemed time to revisit that Mel Brooks clasic, “Springtime for Hitler: A Gay Romp With Eva and Adolf at Berchtesgaden.”

I hadn’t watched this in years. It really is wonderful.

Here’s the video.  Unfortunately, the transcripted posted online, and then copied by everyone, are wrong.  I don’t have it in me to transcribe the entire song, just watch it – it’s wondeful :)

    So Springtime for Hitler was kind of its own Springtime for Hitler? ;-)

    That guy’s voice was clearly Mel Brooks, but the face wasn’t (I think). I had a feeling they dubbed him in, or did he really look like that?

    Stone cold sober, absolutely hysterical! Mel Brooks is a genius, No wonder Anne Bancroft always had a smile on her face.

    Fun! I remember when it was “Morning in America,” a time with less comic but definitely destructive impact on the fading remnant of our now entirely vanished liberal compact with the people.

    I haven’t seen it since 1978 myself. Now I know that second speaker was Mel Brooks!

    The clip is from the original movie which had surprise on it’s side. The musical play was much better than the musical movie. It seemed faster paced and willing to poke fun at itself, or maybe it was better at poking fun at itself.

    I must confess that The Producers has not been one of my favorites. The “Springtime for Hitler” number is superb but the rest of the movie doesn’t quite live up to it. It feels padded somehow, overplayed, as if Brooks knew that he hadn’t quite enough material for a full-length movie but figured that he could stretch all the scenes out with extra slapstick and mugging. It’s not awful by a long shot and I’d reasonably enjoy watching it again (something I can’t say for Blazing Saddles) but I think it’s one of those movies where you’re better off remembering all the funniest bits in your head than rewatching all the lesser material that surrounds it. See also The Big Lebowski.

    Priceless. Timeless. Vicious. Fabulous.

    Ah, one of my all time favorites!

    Never gets old, and they didn’t best it in the Broadway version.
