He followed Forum with one of the classic comedy performances of all time, producer Max Bialystock in Mel Brooks' The Producers. Mostel's final appearance was in the Academy Award-winning documentary Best Boy (1979). In The Front (1976) Mostel played a write subjected to the Hollywood blacklist of that era. As an actor, he actually was blacklisted for his political views. The film was produced by Martin Ritt, another blacklist victim. Fine condition.
