The Producers (1967)

Ending / spoiler

(1 vote)

At first it looks like the audience is going to storm out, but then LSD comes on as Hitler and everyone thinks it's a comedy. The musical is a huge hit, and it looks like Max and Leo will be going to jail. Franz comes in and tries to shoot them, but Max instead persuades him to help them blow up the theatre. A mistake over which fuse to use leaves them all injured, and in the next scene they're in the dock.It ends with the three in jail, but rehearsing a new play, 'Prisoners of Love', and clearly trying to pull the same scam that got them arrested...

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Max and Leo visit Roger DeBris, Karman Ghia instructs them to remove their shoes because of the white carpet, and they do so. In the next scene, Max and Leo sit down and you can clearly see they have their shoes on. (00:42:25)

Trivia: Although Mel Brooks wrote the film's musical numbers, he isn't music literate. He hummed the songs into a tape recorder, and the music was transcribed by a professional musician.
