The Producers (1968)

Max Bialystock is a washed up Broadway producer. Leo Bloom is a mousey CPA. When the two meet, their combined expertise points them toward the ultimate scam: Raise more money than you need for a SURE Flop Broadway Show. No one will expect anything back and you can pocket the difference. They need the ultimate bad play to do this. They find it in the Musical Springtime for Hitler.

otsoNY Comments: The "Springtime for Hitler" sequences were filmed at Broadway's Playhouse Theatre on 48th Street. The threatre was torn down in 1969, one year after the film was released, however the Cort Theatre on the opposite side of the street still stands today.
