Mel Brooks’ tribute to Sir Walter Raleigh: a sketch comedy film covering six chapters of human history. From the dawn of man to the distant future, mankind’s evolution (or lack thereof) is traced. Often ridiculous but never serious, it shows the Roman Emperor, what really happened at the Last Supper, the circumstances that surrounded the French Revolution, how to test eunuchs, and what kind of shoes the Spanish Inquisitor wore.
