THE TWELVE CHAIRS
July 24, 2013  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

TCM, 9:30 p.m. ET

 
This is the first time TCM has shown this 1970 Mel Brooks film – the relatively (and unfairly) overlooked one he directed after The Producers but before Blazing Saddles. It stars Ron Moody and Frank Langella as an unlikely pair of Russians – one man a descendant of royalty, the other a beggar – who team up to find a fortune in jewels, sewn into the cushions of one of a dozen family chairs.  The chair have ended up in various places over the years, and in search of fortune, so do the two men searching for them (and others, including Dom DeLuise as a Russian orthodox priest).
