By the Gods!

Ron Carey, Bea Arthur and Mel Brooks in HISTORY OF THE WORLD PART 1 (1981)

I got the Blu-ray edition of this comedy. It's fun to watch a movie set in Antiquity but like such comedies, it's hit and miss. Brooks is getting his money from the unemployment department, with Bea as the 'dole officer.'  Is this Bea's only role set in Antiquity? It's a silly scene but it's memorable. The Blu-ray looks good and the production has some amazing aspects to it, including the many matte paintings, which look great in HD.
