The Producers

The Producers

Submitted by Peter Miller

MGM Home Entertainment had fun with their release of Mel Brooks’ “The Producers” it seemed as the studio has hidden a number of hidden features on this DVD.

Insert the disc in your player and on the Main Menu highlight the “Play Movie” menu entry. Now press the “Left” arrow key on your remote control and the big “18” on the screen will be highlighted. Now press the “Enter” key and you will get to a screen that tells you that most of the hidden features on this DVD will be soundbites from the dubbing sessions during post-production of the movie. You can uncover the various soundbites by selecting the many numbers and letters that are around the edge of the Main Menu, which looks like a movie ticket.

But there’s yet another hidden feature. Once again highlight the “Play Movie” menu entry on the Main Menu but this time press the “Up” arrow key on your remote control. This will highlight “Springtime For Hitler” and if you press “Enter” you will see and hear what appears to be a discarded menu animation of Lee Meredith doing her dance.
