Start The Revolution Without Me
Set just prior to the French revolution, this hilarious comedy tells the tale of two sets of identical twins (Gene Wilder and Donald Sutherland) who are mixed up at birth and do not meet until they are 30 years old. One set of mismatched brothers are peasant members of the rebel cause, while the other two are aristocratic spies sent into the streets of Paris to gather information. When the four meet, comical chaos ensues. As a former championship fencer and fencing instructor, Wilder adds extra finesse and realism during the swordfighting scenes.

"Seems like a Mel Brooks farce, but it's a Yorkin! Pretty zany."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"When at its best, it's easy to understand its cult status."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
