Our Favourite Accountants from TV and Movies – Leopold "Leo" Bloom from The Producers
Mel Brooks's directorial debut, The Producers, won him an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay in 1968. The movie stars Zero Mostel as the the once-great toast of Broadway, Max Bialystock, and Gene Wilder as Max's accountant, Leo Bloom. This crazy, satirical comedy is a must see for Wilder fans. In order to cover up some dodgy accounting in Max's books, Leo convinces Max to create a show that will flop. They work out that the idea will also earn them stacks of cash. They choose to create a tasteless musical - Springtime for Hitler: A Gay Romp with Adolf and Eva at Berchtesgaden. Of course, the show ends up being a sensational hit! What happens after that is just plain nuts!
