THE PRODUCERS is a 1967 comedy in which two men attempt to create a Broadway flop as part of a get-rich-quick scheme.

Sex

Mild sex references occur when a woman attempts to engage a man in various role play scenarios. In another scene the camera focuses on a woman's clothed chest as she dances; we also see a pair of men staring at her, open-mouthed. A woman strips down to her underwear and asks a man to 'make love' to her.

Violence

In a sequence of comic violence, a man attempts to shoot two other people and then himself; no one is hurt, however. Milder violence includes a comedic fistfight without resultant injury detail.

There is a comic and non-graphic verbal reference to sexual role play based on the Rape of Lucretia. In another scene a man yells the word 'rape' when physically threatened by another man.

Language

Mild bad language includes 'bloody'.

Discrimination

There is infrequent use of discriminatory terms including 'fruit'.

There are frequent comic references to Hitler and Nazi Germany, including sight of dancers in Nazi uniforms carrying swastikas and performing Nazi salutes. Non-graphic verbal drug references include a character by the name of LSD. Other issues include scenes of smoking.
