Great Movie, using a Mel Brooks comedy fashion, but preceding Mel Brooks movies. It set a new trend

This movie did not have widespread circulation when it was released. It was a bit before its time, and started the movement for later comedies such as Young Frankenstein. I find Gene Wilder's performance to be hilarious. Donald Sotherland does a good job as well. Movie is based on twins being switched at birth, one set goes to a Nobleman, the other to a peasant. After this movie, you will always remember 1789.
