A mid-tier Mel Brooks film. What's great about this is Mel Brooks is the star. It features all of the Brooks essential, Kahn, Korman, Van Patten, Jew jokes. The fact that he had the balls to parody Hitchcock films is fantastic. Supposedly, according to Robert Osborne of TCM, Hitchcock actually supplied one joke to the film. I don't know which one.

Another solid parody, from Brooks. This one is just what you'd expect of him. There are a few really good jokes here that are some of my favorites of his.
