    ITEM#: 10361201

    In this spoof of great moments in history from the dawn of humanity through the French Revolution, director Mel Brooks delivers a twisted history lesson through his signature satirical, madcap humor. Funny, vulgar, and narrated by the great Orson Welles, HISTORY OF THE WORLD - PART I tells the progress of humankind as cave dweller, tap-dancing slave, and biblical hero. The most famous bit in the film features Moses coming down from Mount Sinai. Other highlights include a hilarious "Hitler on Ice" sequence and other outrageous comic situations, unbelievably silly jokes, and inspired casting (Sid Caesar, Gregory Hines, and Madeline Kahn included), with the film itself mimicking several historical Hollywood epics, most notably THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD and THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, as well as a brilliant parody of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.

      THIS IS AN ALL TIME COMEDY GREAT. I THINK IT WAS SO FAR AHEAD OF ITS TIME. IT HADE ME SAYING "ITS GOOD TO BE THE KING!" FOR MONTHS. I LOOKED ALL OVER FOR THIS DVD AND BY CHANCE FOUND IT HERE ON OVERSTOCK. THIS IS THE MAIN REASON I HAVE BECOME A CUSTOMER. WAY TO GO ON THE CLASSICS.
