You do make the MOST excellent finds, HEINZ! Truth be told, some stories of Niv’s (and don’t get me wrong- I LOVE the man)… were “borrowed” (as in other people’s), but NOT this one. There even exists footage of the “tail end” of the “falling off” of the tail end (of a horse) in what is clearly “Charge” garb. I have it on VHS tape and it was a part of some bloopers collection… but could NOT find it on the internet when I went a looking… so, as the saying goes, be on… As I say, it was “buried”… Read more »

Didn’t know you were so MUSE-ical Heinz… in getting me off of the proverbial posterior and back on the trail. Probably the best I can do as filming VHS would be none too good! See the link below in the time slot from 0:45 -0:52 And you’re SO RIGHT as to so much yet to be discovered… and you NEVER know what it could be or what direction from which it will come… paging the Eastman House… COME ON GUYS, hurry up with the restoration (and release) of Hello God!

IMhO, the PENTULTIMATE moment of the film as captured in a word: “PORTHOLE”…

It’s the re-embracing of a LEGACY where ART (My Favorite Year) vanquishes artifice (Errol Flynn: The Untold Story) and what remains for posterity is the image of Allan Swan in a final celebratory salute, brandishing his sword, once again, ALOFT.

So, PROUDLY, we hail (still hale and hearty) MEL BROOKS!
