No Antagonist should be here, Ulla and Franz are close but are not consistent enough as opposing forces to count.
S Hould My God What Have I done applied to this? Once Leo's in Rio with Ulla and he's had sex with her as well a chance to get out of his panicky stage, he realizes Max is in trouble and he and Ulla go to Max's trial and urge the judge that Max isn't the type who'd hurt anyone. The judge nonetheless throw the two men and Liebkind into Sing Sing for 5 years, where they work on "Prisoners of Love"—and on getting pardoned, Leo and Max take it to Broadway (with Ulla doing the lead with Roger joining in), with Leo getting his "producer's hat" and joining Max as "the kings of Broadway."
Should Unintentionally Sympathetic apply to Roger De Bris' portrayal of Hitler in the musical and the movie? This performance in rehearsal (which is on the album of the musical) for the song "Heil Myself" showed Adolf Hitler of all people with a bit of sympathy. "But it wasn't always so easy..." and does Adolf with a Southern twang. Shows Carmen was right in boosting Roger, and when Roger put it all into his performace Up to Eleven, he turned a flop into a hit.
Removed the following from Refuge in Audacity:
Unnecessary for the trope. Put it on the page for Mel Brooks.
Removed the "Single Entendre" comment from the Double Entendre entry.
Added a played straight example to "Get a Hold Of Yourself"
Reworded Stop Helping Me to reflect the fact that it's said in both movies. If anyone's seen the play and can confirm it's said there, please change it further.
