    A DOSE OF LAUGHTER FOR THE BLU’S


    HIGH ANXIETY
    HISTORY OF THE WORLD: PART I
    ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS


    Favorites From The King Of Comedy Arrive On Blu-ray Disc May 11
    From Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment


    LOS ANGELES, Calif. (March 29, 2010) – Written and produced by Academy Award®-winner* Mel Brooks, High Anxiety, History Of The World Part I and Robin Hood: Men In Tights arrive on Blu-ray Disc May 11 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Each film is available separately for the suggested retail price of $24.99 U.S./ $25.99 Canada.

    An outrageous homage to the Hitchcock thriller about a nut-job with a paralyzing fear of heights, High Anxiety stars the comic genius himself as renowned Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Richard Thorndyke who’s just become head of the Psycho-Neurotic Institute for the Very Very Nervous. Co-starring Harvey Korman, Cloris Leachman and Madeline Kahn, High Anxiety is considered one of Brooks’ best.

    Next, the term “revisionist history” is given a new meaning in History Of The World: Part I, a laugh-filled version of the story of mankind. Featuring an all-star cast with Brooks, Dom DeLuise, Madeline Kahn and Gregory Hines, the film proves that nothing, including history, is sacred.

    Lastly, Brooks pulls off another serious spoof on a classic with Robin Hood: Men in Tights. The one-of-a-kind cast includes Cary Elwes as the head of the merry men, Roger Rees as the evil dyslexic Sheriff of “Rottingham,” Richard Lewis as the seriously neurotic Prince John, Amy Yasbeck as the put-upon Maid Marian, Patrick Stewart as ultrrrra-Scottish King Richard, Tracey Ullman as a much-sought-after soothsayer named Latrine and Dave Chappelle and Isaac Hayes as hilarious characters named Achchoo and Asneeze.

    Excellent! Patience paid off in waiting for History of the World to be released separately. Now, if The Producers will only get released, I will have all my favorite Mel Brooks films on BD!
