"Why did you choose this product?"
ITEM#: 2948066A madcap spoof of the classic Hollywood Western, BLAZING SADDLES is also one of the most gleefully anti-P.C. films ever produced by a major studio. When the sheriff of a small frontier town is killed, convict Bart (Cleavon Little) is appointed the first black sheriff of all-white Rock Ridge by the evil Hedley Lamarr (Harvey Korman), who hopes this will chase the townspeople from their homes. The naive Sheriff Bart soon catches on, realizing from the less than cheery welcome that the townspeople (who all seem to be named Johnson) aren't prepared for a black sheriff and that he was never meant to succeed at all. Enlisting the help of the sensitive town drunk (Gene Wilder), formerly the Waco Kid, Bart embarks on a plan to save Rock Ridge. A scathing spoof that deals with racism, sexism, and bodily functions, BLAZING SADDLES offers a contrast between picture and words that is shocking, subversive, and hilarious. Director Mel Brooks makes two memorable appearances--as both the sleazy governor and a Yiddish-speaking Sioux Indian chief--while Madeline Kahn does a sidesplitting Marlene Dietrich imitation as the town floozy. Featuring fabulous comic turns by Alex Karras and Slim Pickens, BLAZING SADDLES is raunchy, lovable, and uproarious.

Hilarious movie, not a huge Gene Wilder fan but this one was great! unexpected twist endRead More
Though a classic much of the humor today could pass as insensitive to minorities. As adults we can brush this off in the spirit of comedy, but if you have children it may take explaining as any responsible adult should do.Read More
A truely crazy classic...Lilly von Stupp, le Petomaine, all mad, bad and wonderful. Worth the purchase alone for the Busby Berkley takeoff at the end...screamingly funny from beginning to end, but not for the kids.Read More
