To Be or Not to Be ★★½ 1983 (PG)

In this remake of the 1942 film, Bancroft and Brooks are actors in Poland during WWII. They accidently become involved with the Polish Resistance and work to thwart the Nazis. Lots of laughs, although at times there's a little too much slapstick. 108m/C VHS, DVD . Mel Brooks, Anne Bancroft, Charles Durning, Jose Ferrer, Tim Matheson, Christopher Lloyd; D: Alan Johnson; W: Ronny Graham.
