Juggling in Movies

Robin Hood, Men in Tights (1993)

[Mel Brooks film; Cary Elwes, Richard Lewis, Roger Rees, Amy Yasbeck]

In this parody of costume dramas in general and Kevin Costner's "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" in particular, Mel Brooks takes us to his idea of Sherwood Forest, where Robin Hood actually has an English accent, his men wear sheer little tights, and the jokes are ones you've enjoyed time and again in other Brooks comedies.

Bob Mendelsohn and Kathy Mendelsohn appear juggling machetes, with double spins, in the back of a crowd scene for less than a second. Lisa Fay walks a rolling globe. Photo shows Kathy (left), Bob, and Lisa.
