The producers : the original soundtrack recording by John Morris( Recording )

7 editions published between 1968 and 2003 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nebish accountant Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) and his broke, theatrical producer-client Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) cook up a money making plot that can't fail: get some old ladies to invest high on a show that is a sure-fire flop, and walk away rich when the play shuts down after one night. Social comment, slapstick and broad humor all merge in this homage to corruption and cluelessness. The script was brilliant and Wilder's breakthrough performance earned him a nod for Best Supporting Actor. Kenneth Mars is brilliant as "Springtime For Hitler" playwright Franz Liebkind and Christopher Hewett is unforgettable as foo-foo director Roger De Bris. Dick Shawn steals the whole show as Lorenzo St. Du Bois (a.k.a. LSD), the hipster Hitler who exclaims "baby" at the end of every sentence

But when their sure-to-offend musical becomes a surprise smash hit, they find themselves in the middle of a Broadway blitzkrieg!
