For his second movie (1970, 94 min.), Mel Brooks turned to the often filmed Russian comic novel about an impoverished nobleman who has to chase down a set of heirloom chairs, one of which contains the family jewels. The “classiness” of this picture—foreign locations, postcard cinematography, classical source, British actors—seems meant as an answer to the sloppiness of The Producers; unfortunately, it also murders most of the jokes. With Frank Langella, Ron Moody, Dom DeLuise, and Bridget Brice.
