The Twelve Chairs
1970
***½
Director: Mel Brooks
Cast: Frank Langella, Ron Moody, Dom DeLuise, Mel Brooks, Bridget Brice

This enjoyable slapstick comedy set in Russia tells a story of a poor man who is desperate to locate a set of 12 dining chairs, because one of them has hidden jewels. A typically outrageous Mel Brooks comedy, but based on a story that has been filmed many times before.
