In this spoof of great moments in history from the dawn of humanity through the French
Revolution, director Mel Brooks delivers a twisted history lesson through his signature satirical,
madcap humor. Funny, vulgar, and narrated by the great Orson Welles, 'History of the World
Part I' tells the progress of humankind as cave dweller, tap-dancing slave, and biblical hero.
The most famous bit in the film features Moses coming down from Mount Sinai. Other
highlights include a hilarious "Hitler on Ice" sequence and other outrageous comic situations,
unbelievably silly jokes, and inspired casting (Sid Caesar, Gregory Hines, and Madeline Kahn
included), with the film itself mimicking several historical Hollywood epics, most notably 'The
Greatest Story Ever Told' and 'The Ten Commandments', as well as a brilliant parody of
'2001: A Space Odyssey'.
