"Silent Movie"

The TFH Grab Bag! concludes at Trailers from Hell, with Alan Spencer introducing Mel Brooks' "Silent Movie."

Brooks' affectionate 1976 tribute to silent films is oddly subdued (for a Mel Brooks film) though the good-natured comedy still contains plenty of chuckles if not outright bellylaughs. By deciding to keep his actors completely silent, Brooks lost much of the raucous verbal humor that propels so much of his best work. With cameo appearances by Burt Reynolds, Paul Newman and that chatterbox Marcel Marceau.
