The Mel Brooks Collection: Volume 1 - High Anxiety / Life Stinks / To Be or Not To Be / History of the World Part 1

Four classic films from comic genius Mel Brooks. 'High Anxiety' - Dr Robert Thorndyke is the newly appointed director of the psychoneurosis institute, but holding such a high position brings on the vertigo! He soon realises he's almost as unbalanced as the patients in his care! 'Life Stinks' - That's the cry of filthy rich business magnate Mel Brooks when he wagers that he can survive a month on the streets of Skid Row L.A. without his millions and mansion. 'To Be Or Not To Be' - Actor Fred Bronski is on stage in Hamlet... but his theatrical joys are short-lived when Bronksi and his band of bold thespians find themselves enlisted in a plot to outwit the nasty Nazis! 'History of the World Part 1' - This overwhelming masterpiece is Mel Brooks' hilarious trip through time, with stops at the dawn of Man, Ancient Rome, the Middle Ages, and the French Revolution.
