The moral of "The Producers" is that, from tax fraud to The Holocaust, there is no crime so heinous that rich white people won't both get away with it, and profit from it after the fact.

Oklahoma: Don’t worry about telling the mentally ill individual to kill himself and challenging his life. If you can take him on physically, you’ll still be able to have the town on your side in the murder trial!
