Overview
Only Mel Brooks would tell his laugh-packed tale about a silent movie--as a silent movie--with one word of dialogue. Joining him in his outrageous, nonstop parade of sight gags are Marty Feldman, Dom DeLuise, Sid Caesar, Harold Gould, Bernadette Peters and Ron Carey.

As the ruthless congolmerate Engulf and Devour targets a floundering movie studio, has-been director Mel Funn (Brooks) convinces the paranoid studio chief (Caesar) to make a star-studded silentpicture. Aided by his sidekicks (DeLuise and Feldman), the devious Funn actually manages to sign some of the biggest names in Hollywood: Paul Newman, Liza Minelli, Burt Reynolds, Anne Bancroft and James Caan.

Filled with hilarious spoofs of just about everything that happens in tinseltown, Silent Movie is one of Brooks' funniest, most original films.
