Other mistake: After the "fat fat fatty" scene, Franz shoots his way in, starting with three bullets into the door lock. Over the next scene he fires about twelve shots, despite the fact he's firing an 8-shot Luger.

Audio problem: During LSD's performance of "Love Power" at the Springtime for Hitler auditions, it's possible to hear musical instruments that the members of his band do not play, for example a bass guitar, drums, and a flute are heard but not seen.

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: During "Springtime for Hitler," film director Mel Brooks can be heard saying "Don't be stupid, be a smarty! Come and join the Nazi party!" He later dubbed the same line in the 2005 version.

Trivia: The film inspired a 2000 Broadway musical, with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick as Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom, respectively. The musical won 12 Tony Awards. The musical was later adapted into a film, becoming a movie based on a musical based on a movie about a musical.

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.
