Sunday Dec  27, 2015  2:00 PM.   A Family Comedy  made in 1976

MEL  BROOKS'  SILENT  MOVIE"

Jim Ford--Musical  interpreter on  the Robert-Morton Theatrical Unit Organ 

This 1976  Slapstick Comedy film was made with  no words

spoken until Marceau  talked!  ONE word!!!

(per Wikipedia's   website)  SILENT MOVIE is a 1976 satirical comedy film co-written,

directed by, and starring Mel Brooks, and released by 20th Century Fox

on June 17, 1976. 

       The ensemble cast includes Dom DeLuise, Marty Feldman, Bernadette

Peters, and Sid Caesar, with appearances by Anne Bancroft, Liza Minnelli,

Burt Reynolds, James Caan, Marcel Marceau and Paul Newman playing

themselves.

While indeed silent (except for one word, music and numerous sound effects),

the film is a parody of the silent film genre, particularly the  slapstick comedies

of Charlie Chaplin, Mack Sennett, and Buster Keaton. Among the film's most

famous gags is the fact that the only audible word in the movie is spoken by

Marcel Marceau, a noted mime!

.       Sound is a big factor in the film's humor, as when a scene that shows New York City , begins with the song "San Francisco", only to have it come to a sudden stop as  the musicians realize they are playing the wrong music. They then go into "I'll Take Manhattan" instead.

A play on the 1970s trend of large corporations buying up smaller companies is parodied in this film by the attempt of the Engulf and Devour Corporation to take control of a studio (a thinly veiled reference to Gulf+Western's takeover of Paramount Pictures).
