A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a 1966 farce musical comedy film, based on the stage musical of the same name. It was inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus (251-183 . – specifically Pseudolus, Miles Gloriosus and Mostellaria – and tells the bawdy story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. The film was directed by Richard Lester, with Zero Mostel and Jack Gilford reprising their stage roles
Forum opened on Broadway on May 8, 1962 at the Alvin Theater; directed by George Abbott and produced by Hal Prince, it ran for a total of 964 performances. The role of Pseudolus was originally written for Phil Silvers, but he turned it down. Milton Berle also passed on the role, and eventually Zero Mostel was cast. During its off-Broadway productions, the show as originally conceived was attracting little business and needed a change
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom
A Funny Thing Happened o. .has been added to your Cart. This screen adaptation of the stage musical of the same name finds the Roman slave Pseudolus scheming his way to freedom by playing matchmaker for his master's son, Hero, who is smitten with the blonde and beautiful Philia. However, things don't go at all according to plan. The complications that ensue involve blackmail, funny disguises and long-lost children, while Pseudolus desperately tries to keep up with his end of the bargain.
Oddly enough, amidst all the frenzy, Lester creates a grungy, earthy Rome that seems closer to the real thing than countless respectable historical films on the subject.
A marvel of gleefully saucy yet wholly innocent farce that leaves you spent from laughter and humming a catchy tune, writes Howard Sherman. Nineteen sixty-two was too late for vaudeville, and surely the Roman comedies of Plautus were known only by Latin academics. Instead of introducing us to the characters or putting the plot in motion, it seeks only to tell the.
