Before the Airplane parodies, before Blazing Saddles, before the Laugh-in and Monty Python, before them all, there was Hellzapoppin (1941). As well as being a groundbreaking critique of the phony restrictions of Hollywood narrative, the comic mayhem of Hellzapoppin celebrates swing dance and the genius of performers like Frankie Manning. If you have not seen Hellzapoppin before, you are in for a treat. And if you have, you'll welcome the chance to see it again on a big screen.
