So I was thinking about some of my all time favorite movies and this is definitely near the top of the list. I remember growing up watching this movie and laughing my a** off. This had everything; comedic timing, physical comedy, sarcasm and great one-liners. In addition, it had some great musical performances and an all-star cast.
This got me to thinking... Movie studios are looking through their entire catalogs for flicks that they can transition into money making Broadway bound musicals. This seems like a no-brainer to adapt the Three Amigos for the Broadway stage. There are a few songs already to start with and I can totally see places you can add more. Imagine a rousing chorus of villagers singing about their skill in sewing! Or a ditty on the use of fancy words sung by a gang of outlaws called "I have a Plethora."
Someone please make this happen and soon. This is something I would love to see in my lifetime.
