Opens a short season of films from the American master of outrageous comedy - Mel Brooks
Starring Mel Brooks, Madeline Kahn, Cloris Leachman
Strange happenings greet Dr Richard H. Thorndyke on his appointment as head of The Psycho-Neurotic Institute for the Very, Very Nervous. The staff seem to have distinctly weird habits and Thorndyke finds his own neuroses increasing as he struggles with a plot against him and some very familiar incidents involving showers, birds, cool blondes and dizzy heights... Dedicated to the 'Master of Suspense' this affectionate parody of Hitchcock features a hilarious performance from Brooks himself as the psychiatrist with more problems than his patients.
