Movie Summary

Director:
Mel Brooks
Released:
1977
Rating:
PG
High Anxiety is a must see for anyone who loves Alfred Hitchcock movies. This hilarious spoof from Mel Brooks is no doubt one of his best movies, and ranks with the best parodies of all time. In the movie, the main character is a psychiatrist named Dr. Richard H. Thorndyke (Mel Brooks) who becomes the head of a mental hospital. Accused of murder, he falls on difficult times. In order to clear himself from the list of suspects, the doctor must face his own neurological disorder; the fear of heights. Using famous scenes from many of the Alfred Hitchcock movies such as "Psycho" and "Vertigo", actor Harvey Korman, and actresses Madeline Kahn, and Cloris Leachman along with Mel Brooks, take you on a wild ride that will keep you chuckling throughout the entire film. No one who sees this picture will ever forget the attack of the birds or the kid who just can't seem to remember to bring the doctor his newspaper. You will never see Alfred Hitchcock movies the same way again.moreless
