    I'm a mel brooks fan, this film and Blazing Saddles are the only 2 movies by him I haven't seen yet. I just bought the Producers and thought it was hilarious

    Max Bialystock: That's it, baby, when you've got it, flaunt it, flaunt it!

    I will be buying Blazing Saddles soon but I was wondering since my Blockbuster doesn't have Silent Movie, Blazing Saddles, and other Mel brooks films, if Silent Movie is ever going to be released on DVD?

    20th Century Fox has the rights to Silent Movie. I haven't heard of any plans to release it.

    I love this flick, I also want Silent Movie on DVD. Years ago I recorded it onto videotape from a laserdisc I had rented. I remember a rumor that there would be a Mel Brooks boxed set and Silent Movie might possibly be part of it. Guess it was just that, a rumor.

    Being a Mel Brooks fan without having seen Blazing Saddles is like being an Orson Welles fan without having seen Citizen Kane.

    I can't wait for High Anxiety (also a Fox property). I'd also buy Silent Movie (which I have not seen since I was really young.)

    Oh, lord... Silent Movie...

    "He sucks his thumb?"

    I love this movie. This, along with Men in Tights, would be wonderful.

    Actually, Silent Movie IS a prime candidate for DTS since it's 90 minutes of pure music via John Morris' magnificent score . A 5-channel remix would be fantastic.

    I haven't seen it simply because my blockbuster, hollywood video, and the library don't carry it... So I have to wait till I build the cash to buy it [​IMG] Same goes for silent film

    I also want to see High Anxiety & Silent Movie on DVD. These 2 movies need to be on DVD.
