Funniest Screen Moments #1: Love Power

A couple years ago I began keeping a list of what I considered to be some of the funniest moments on film. It never really went anywhere, but it appealed to my obsessive list-keeping sensibilities, and made me happy for the brief time I did it. I had completely forgotten about it until tonight when, in the process of trying to forget a particularly greasy dinner at a restaurant the Missus and I flipped through the channels and found THE PRODUCERS playing on Turner Classic Movies.

It may not be my personal favorite Mel Brooks movie (that honor going to YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN), but it certainly contains IMHO one of the funniest moments he ever captured on film.

And look: now you can see it on You Tube:


  1. That scene is indeed friggin hilarious .. though I love Young Frankenstien and The Producers, my favorite among Mel's many great movies would have to be Blazing Saddles

  2. I'm with you. Young Fankenstein is Brooks' masterpiece. Nevertheless, you just gotta love that scene. Could never fugure out why they didn't include "Love Power" in the stage musical version of The Producers. I'm sure they could've found a way to work it in.
