Nazis, Golden Pretzels and LSD: The Musical
Manage episode 276434015 series 2818416
This week on The Reel Reich we are discussing our love of Mel Brook's The Producers (1967). We delve into how this movie reflected the tumultuous political climate of 1960s America and how the public at different points in history perceives humor when it comes to Nazis and the Holocaust. We will also discuss musical theater and political pageantry in Hitler's Germany and, most importantly, our love of LSD (it's not what you think!)
