The Plank


Eric Sykes, Arthur Lowe, Lional Blair and a host of cameo appearances

When two builders find that a floorboard is missing they buy a replacement and return with it through the streets, causing unexpected chaos. Although not literally a silent film, it has little spoken dialogue and is punctuated instead by other vocal noises and sound effects. A 1979 British slapstick comedy short made for television.

Mel Brooks’ ultimate Western spoof. A town where everyone seems to be named Johnson is in the way of the encroaching railroad. In order to secure the land, Hedley Lemar, a politically connected nasty person, sends in his henchmen to make the town uninhabitable.
