The History of the World (Part 1) (1981)
From variations on Biblical history to a musical number based around the Spanish Inquisition, does The History of the World (Part 1) drown under its own ambition? Narrated by Orson Welles and notable also for the fact that Brooks predicts the trend for spoofing trailers, later seen in the Tarantino Grindhouse tribute and via the Machete series. COMING SOON: ‘JEWS IN SPACE’. A curiosity. Of historical interest.
