A wacked-out comedy classic about a rapacious Broadway producer who plans to stage a guaranteed flop -- and then pocket the backers' money when the production fails. In order to carry out his scheme, the producer enlists a neurotic accountant as his partner and hires an ex-Nazi to write the musical -- a kitsch-fest featuring such infamous numbers as "Springtime for Hitler" and "Look Out, Here Comes the Master Race." There's one thing the partners don't count on, though: the play becoming a runaway hit.
