A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1966)
They just don’t make ’em like Zero Mostel anymore. Pretty much any production featuring Zero is going to be funny, interesting and entertaining. “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” is no exception. Inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus (251-183 B.C.) – specifically Pseudolus, Miles Gloriosus and Mostellaria – it 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.
