History of the World: Part I (1981)

“It’s good to be the king.” And Mel Brooks is. Yet another memorable tale from the mind of Mel Brooks. History of the World: Part I is a more sketch-based tale from Brooks that spans the creation of man, the Stone Age, the Roman Empire, the Spanish Inquisition and the French Revolution. Brooks plays various roles throughout the film (history). A super fun cast accompanies him. Dom DeLuise as Nero, Madeline Kahn as Nympho, Harvey Korman as Count de Monet, Ron Carey as Swiftus, Mary-Margaret Humes as Miriam, Gregory Hines as Josephus and Orson Welles narrates!
