History of the World: Part I (1981)

R 06/12/1981 (US) Comedy 1h 32m

Ten million years in the making. The truth, the whole truth, and everything, but the truth!


An uproarious version of history that proves nothing is sacred – not even the Roman Empire, the French Revolution and the Spanish Inquisition.
