Spaceballs (24-Jun-1987)

Director: Mel Brooks

Writers: Mel Brooks; Thomas Meehan; Ronny Graham

Music by: John Morris

Producer: Mel Brooks

Keywords: Sci-Fi/Comedy, Spoof, Kidnapping, Explosions

Planet Spaceballs has used up all its fresh air; President Skroob dispatches Lord Dark Helmet to kidnap Princess Vespa, daughter of King Roland of Druidia. Her ransom will be the combination to Druidia's air shield, protecting the planet's treasure trove of clean air; perhaps the only ones capable of saving her are Lone Starr and his faithful half-dog, half-man Barf. Spoof primarily of Star Wars (1977), with many other films lampooned as well.
