In this outrageous homage to Hitchcock thrillers, Mel Brooks plays renowned Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Richard Thorndyke, a nut-job with a paralyzing fear of heights, who's just become head of the Psycho-Neurotic Institute for the Very Very Nervous. After the jittery doc learns that his predecessor died under suspicious circumstances, he looks for help from his resentful associate and his evil head nurse--who, not surprisingly, offer no help. To make matters worse, events take a murderous turn, and Thorndyke is accused of the crime.
Originally released as a motion picture in 1977.
