Blazing Saddles is on Netflix now. Arguably the funniest movie ever. Writing just doesn't happen like Richard Pryor and Mel Brooks anymore.
so he's allowed to do repeated racist videos that weren't fun? This ain't Blazing Saddles and he ain't Mel Brooks
.If Pewdiepie is anti-Semitic for his $5 message jokes, Mel Brooks hates blacks due to Blazing Saddles.
Sometimes people are joking to try to help, like Mel Brooks for instance. Blazing Saddles is funny, racist, and teaches.
Impossible. I thought I was watching Mel Brooks as the zany mayor in " Blazing Saddles"... it would be funny if it wasn't so sad
If hates Jews, then Blazing Saddles is racist propaganda.Ergo Richard Pryor & Mel Brooks are racist. Let that sink in.
There must be some reason I am repeatedly reminded of Mel Brooks' Governor character from Blazing Saddles when I...
Trump:Mel Brooks; Priebus:Harvey Korman. A Blazing Saddles cabinet. 'I didn't get a harrumph out of that guy'.and so, I fear, it will be.
It's a good thing Mel Brooks made Blazing Saddles in 1974, I can't imagine the vitriol such a film would incite in today's "progressive" era
reminds me of Mel Brooks in Blazing Saddles
was Mel Brooks' muse & he was hilarious in Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein & The Producers.Unmissable- far better than Wonka

Legendary comic Mel Brooks talks 'Blazing Saddles,' Richard Pryor in Orange County: The storied life of Mel Brooks…
Actually, Mel Brooks proved cruelty, sexism, and racism can be funny if done well. Blazing Saddles. But not in reality.
Not even a drive to Orange County could deny the pure, life-affirming joy of Mel Brooks live on stage after a screening of Blazing Saddles.
What are your most favoritable Mel Brooks movies? Mine are Robin Hood: Men In Tights, Spaceballs, and Blazing Saddles.

When Mel Brooks passes, I'm just gonna snap and become the Mayor from Blazing Saddles and everyone'll have to deal.
Mel Brooks & Cleavon Little on location for one of the most irreverent comedies ever made, 'Blazing Saddles' (1974).
I think Eric Mccormack could be solid in Gene Wilder's role in Blazing Saddles. Toughest are Cleavon Little, Mel Brooks, & Harvey Korman.
I've actually heard a serious argument that Mel Brooks had it better when "Young Frankenstein"/"Blazing Saddles" both came out.
it's not better, by Mel Brooks directing Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein that year is pretty astounding to me.
idk but can you believe that Mel Brooks also put out both Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein that same year !!?
call up Mel Brooks and see if you can get a sequel/parody of Blazing Saddles going with you as the star
I dunno - I'm thinking of Blazing Saddles and race? Though I'm probably the first person to ever accuse Mel Brooks of morality.
They are like Mel Brooks as the governor in Blazing Saddles.lol
I love that in his "at the Geffen" show, Mel Brooks admitted Frankie Laine wasn't in on the joke when he sang "Blazing Saddles"
After watching Blazing Saddles i'm convinced Mel Brooks made the 4th wall about as effective as the Berlin Wall. In 1990.
Starting up my newly acquired Mel Brooks bluray set with the glorious Blazing Saddles.
It's an interesting glimpse into the cortex of Mel Brooks that his greatest inspiration, the one that inspired Blazing Saddles, was Gogol

If any doubt of Mel Brooks' comedic genius linger / Look how he gave Hollywood the finger!
Just finished watching this. It was good, but it was no Blazing Saddles. I still enjoyed it. Mel Brooks talent is...
Another reason to love Mel Brooks: "ABC News Radio later asked Brooks how he wants to be remembered 100 years from now. He replied, 'I don't want to be remembered at all, but I'd like my work to be remembered. I'd like The Producers to be remembered. I'd like The Twelve Chairs, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, High Anxiety, I want those to be remembered. I don't care about myself, really. Because it's only a work that lives after you.'"
I have always LOVED Mel Brooks and pretty much all of his films. What amazes me is that movies like "Blazing Saddles" could never be made today because of whiny little thin-skinned *** that find fault in humor because it MIGHT offend someone . . . whatever - F' off! As I get off of my soapbox, please check out how Mel Brooks gave Hollywood the finger recently . . . absolutely brilliant!
Have you ever seen Blazing Saddles, It's my favourite Mel Brooks film. Gene Wilder is in it - he has some genius lines!

Harvey Herschel Korman (February 15, 1927 – May 29, 2008) was an American comedic actor who performed in television and movie productions and was also a voice artist. His big break was being a featured performer on CBS's The Danny Kaye Show, but he is best remembered for his performances on the sketch comedy series The Carol Burnett Show and in several films by Mel Brooks, most notably as Hedley Lamarr in Blazing Saddles. Korman made his first TV appearance as a comically exasperated public relations man in a January, 1961 episode of the CBS drama Route 66. He appeared on numerous television programs after that, including the role of Blake in the 1964 episode "Who Chopped Down the Cherry Tree?" on the NBC medical drama The Eleventh Hour, and a bartender in the 1962 Perry Mason episode, "The Case of the Unsuitable Uncle." He frequently appeared as a supporting player on The Danny Kaye Show from 1963 through 1967. He was cast three times, including the role of Dr. Allison in "Who Needs Glasses?" (1962), o ...
watch Blazing Saddles and The Producers when you can. They're my top 2 Mel Brooks films.
Mel Brooks bday is Sat. Reply with Fav quote & related exercise from Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and Spaceballs
OK, I have a bone to pick with y'all. When I purchased the ticket on-line, it asked me to list my favorite Mel Brooks movie. How do you expect me to do that? It would be like saying to a parent to pick their favorite child! Sheesh! I finally settled on Blazing Saddles, but The Producers, Young Frankenstein, and Spaceballs were tough contenders. All of them endlessly quotable: *** "They've gone straight to plaid!" "Hey! Where ya goin'? I was gonna make espresso..." Leo Bloom: "Actors are not animals! They're human beings!" Max Bialystock: "They are? Have you ever eaten with one? " "Evil will always triumph, because good is dumb!" Bart: "Well, Jim, since you are my guest and I am your host, what's your pleasure? What do you like to do?" Jim: "Oh, I don't know. Play chess... screw..." Bart: [quickly] "Well, let's play chess." *** Ahem. I could go on, but you get the point. :)
This just in! Mel Brooks sez townsfolk of Westport will star in the new Blazing Saddles redux. Clyde Jackman will star as Hedley Lamarr.
We saw Seth Macfarlane's movie, 'A Million Ways to Die in the West.' It was a comedy, yet a drama, and while a bit off the mark, we laughed a lot! There was an abundance of crude sexual content, especially since I was watching it with my Dad; fortunately, my Dad loves slapstick comedy, bathroom humor, 'South Park,' 'National Lampoon,' 'MAD Magazine,' and some of his all-time favorite movies are 'Animal House,' 'Airplane,' 'Blazing Saddles, and most Mel Brooks and Peter Sellers movies. I enjoyed it, and regardless of some bad reviews, it was still worth watching. Seth Macfarlane and Charlize Theron were cute together, and as always, Liam Neeson was great, as was Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman, etc. Lots of racial humor, too, but Seth is an equal opportunity offender, so it's all in good fun.
Although I prefer Mel Brooks' other masterpiece, 1974's Young Frankenstein, it took some time for me to warm to his raunchy, bold, and controverisal landmark, Blazing Saddles. What hasn't been said about this uproarious send-up of the Hollywood western, and Archie Bunker politics with a little bodil…
"knock on barbed wire before entering" --ya gotta give it up for Mel Brooks ! (bts on Blazing Saddles )
Okay.So remember my post lamenting the entertainment industry and "The N WORD" well I am about to be a COMPLETE Hypocrite!! So I am watching "Blazing Saddles" on AMC and they have taken the word out of the entire movie.Actually I find that MORE OFFENSIVE. Hey "the N word" is another character in the movie and to take it out is like taking Yoda out of The Empire Strikes Back!!! Richard Pryor (YES THAT Richard Pryor) knew what he was doing when he wrote the film with Mel Brooks. Its satire of the highest order and its mean to speak to the state of the overt racism of the 70's and even the covert racism of today. Simply don't show the movie if you can't show it untouched imho!!
Mel Brooks Blasts Political Correctness: Blazing Saddles Couldn't Be Made Today - In an interview with Yahoo News surrounding the 40th anniversary of his comedic masterpiece \"Blazing Saddles,\" co-writer/director Mel Brooks blasted present-day political correctness and says he was \"lucky\" to have…
Mel Brooks is a comedy icon, and when we got the chance to discuss his masterpiece Blazing Saddles with him, we had no idea just how much fun it would end up being. In this epic conversation, we discuss Richard Pryor, race language, Brooksfilms, and much more.
Happy 40th birthday, "Blazing Saddles", the funniest movie ever made and a film that could not be made today. It is a celebration of the enduring talents of Mel Brooks, Richard Pryor, Cleavon Little, Madeline Kahn. and Gene Wilder.
Mel Brooks got the idea for the fart scene in Blazing Saddles from Fort Sill's. Field Artillery Replacement Training.
Mel Brooks delivers classic funny business in the 40th-anniversay edition of 1974's "Blazing Saddles," and Kristen Bell gets back to a fan favourite character in "Veronica Mars." 680News film critic Leslie James offers a look at some of this week's new Blu-ray and DVD releases.
Finally I have seen Blazing Saddles. It was pretty intriguing. Blazing Saddles 2 out of 4 stars. Rated PG-13 for violence, sexual content, and language. Released in 1974 the film is about (spoilers,) a black railway worker who is about to be hanged for striking the foreman on the head with a shovel. This black worker is given the position of Sheriff of the town of Rockford so as to scare off the black fearing townsfolk so the railroad can be built through the towns remains. This is a funny film by comedy genius Mel Brooks, and staring Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder. Sadly a staple in Brooks's films (the fourth wall joke, where the characters and even crew acknowledge that this is a film,) slows down and stops the third act in it's tracks. Ultimately it is a funny film, however it does have poor pacing.
If Mel Brooks was interested in purchasing the Clippers... would the NBA allow it, given that he wrote Blazing Saddles?
Okay, I'm going to play devils advocate on this one. Please do not interpret this as beliving anything Rod Sterling says, or believes. But what concerns me is that what's being said during a private conversation can lead to a man being banned, and forced to sell what is rightfully his. He broke no law, didn't violate any spreading of hatred. What he said was almost comical in a Mel Brooks, Blazing Saddles way, but more embaressing to himself and to his family. Please don't tell me because he's a billionaire he should hold himself to higher standards, because the rich don't have any standards. I look at my work place, and the fact that soon, our conversations will be recorded on the engine. Every single one of us is guilty in one way or another of saying things that some would deem racist, sexist, rude, or just plain stupid. Will all my co workers who celebrate Rod Sterlings punishment be so jubulant when we lose our jobs for what comes out of our mouths during a private conversation in the cab of ...

Just interrupted a speakerphone call to tell someone that I saw Blazing Saddles for the first time. To be fair, that someone was Mel Brooks

When it comes to Blazing Saddles, humility fails Mel Brooks. “It may be my favorite movie,” the filmmaker told Robert Osborne before a packed 40th anniversary screening for the TCM Classic Film Festival Friday night at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. By the end of the Q&A, Brooks was only getting…
Especially because in Brasil they walk around with a big "CEO" on the back of their suits, Mel Brooks/Blazing Saddles style.
Random sad thought about the 40th anniversary of "Blazing Saddles": Mel Brooks probably couldn't get away with it today. Satire, if not dead, is at least on life support.
Blazing Saddles is the most funniest movie of all time. Mel Brooks is a comedy genius
If you don't know what Blazing Saddles is or who Mel Brooks is then we can't be friends...

Blazing Saddles.one of my favorite movies...mel brooks is a brilliant writer and director
Blazing Saddles on AMC. It looses something being censored for network TV, but still funny as *** Geene Wilder and Mel Brooks where a magical combination.
I wonder if Mel Brooks realized that when he put Gucci on the saddlebags of the sheriff in Blazing Saddles, that Gucci actually made saddles before they made luggage and handbags? I know it was suppose to be a joke, but it was true!!
Blazing Saddles is on!!! One of the best Mel Brooks movies ever!
Mel Brooks classic Blazing Saddles is on! Copa walk!
4hr slow roasted pork tenderloin in gravy and Mel Brooks in Blazing Saddles. Life is quite acceptable at this moment

A friend of mine's current post says, "Describe your last fart using only a movie title." As I was commenting on it, I came to the realization that almost every Mel Brooks movie title could describe a fart. Here are just a few: The Producers, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, History of the World Part I, Silent Movie, High Anxiety, Space Balls, Life Stinks, Dracula – Dead and Loving It. Glad to be able to share this important realization with you all today. I know it has enriched your lives beyond words.
Nothing like watching some of the classics; Mel Brooks marathon (History of the World, Men in Tights, Blazing Saddles, and Young Frankenstein), followed by Monty Python and the Holy Grail. (Unfortunately, it's only 9:30 - I need another 5+ hours of movies to watch.)
40th Anniversary of Blazing Saddles. - wow. Love Mel Brooks!
Mel Brooks paired with Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder is comedic genius. Blazing Saddles rocks my socks :)
Andrew Bergman (20 February 1945) is an American screenwriter, film director, and novelist. New York magazine in 1985 dubbed him "The Unknown King of Comedy". Bergman wrote the original screenplay (titled Tex X) that served as the basis for Mel Brooks's classic Blazing Saddles (1974), and was among the co-writers who adapted it into its final state. Since then, he has written or co-written the cult classics The In-Laws (1979) starring Peter Falk and Alan Arkin; Fletch (1985) starring Chevy Chase; and Soapdish (1991); written and directed : So Fine (1981) starring Ryan O'Neal; The Freshman (1990) starring Marlon Brando and Matthew Broderick; Honeymoon in Vegas (1992) starring Nicolas Cage, James Caan and Sarah Jessica Parker ; and It Could Happen To You (1994) starring Nicolas Cage and Bridget Fonda; written and produced Striptease (1996) starring Demi Moore; and directed the Jacqueline Susann biopic Isn't She Great (2000) starring Bette Midler and Nathan Lane.
Actor, Comedian Harvey Korman was born on this date in 1927. In the early days he did the voice for the Great Gazoo in the animated series "The Flintstones." In 1967 he joined the ensemble cast of "The Carol Burnett Show" which proved to be his niche, creating several memorable characters and classic moments. He was memorable as Hedley Lamarr in 1974's Western spoof "Blazing Saddles", working with Mel Brooks. He died in 2008, Burial: Woodlawn Cemetery Santa Monica Los Angeles County California, USA

In 1950, television comedy didn't exist. Sid Caesar helped invent it. He led a team of young soon-to-be comedy legends (Mel Brooks, Woody Allen, Carl Reiner, Imogene Coca, Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart) and they did a 90-minute live comedy show 25 years before Saturday Night Live. Without Sid Caesar, we'd have no *** Van *** Show, no Blazing Saddles, no Sleeper, no Seinfeld, no M*A*S*H, maybe not even Milton Berle, Lucille Ball, Steve Martin or Monty Python. He helped to shape comedy for a television medium like Steve Jobs helped put computers in our homes. He beat the bottle, beat pills, and died of old age in his bed. Salut!
I had no idea that Max Brooks, who wrote the rather good book World War Z (which bears no resemblance to the movie at all) is the son of Mel Brooks. Also, he was born during the production of Blazing Saddles.
secondary reminder that somehow mel brooks managed to strike *** gold twice in the same year with Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein
I apologize to Any Denver Broncos fans but i had to do this because the game was just a massacre. (and before you *** at PETA complain this is a scene from the mel brooks movie Blazing Saddles. i don't condone the punching of horse because i like Horses)
"If Billy Wilder likes it, it must be good." -- Mel Brooks, discussing Blazing Saddles (1974), with Jerry Seinfeld
One of Warner Bros. biggest mistakes: just found out Richard Pryor was Mel Brooks 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice for the lead in Blazing Saddles, but WB voted it down. Blazing Saddles is one of my favorite comedies, the ONLY thing that could've made it better was Pryor.. *** the possibilities are mind bottling
There has not been a better acting group than Mel Brooks, Gene Wilder and Madeline Kahn. I mean, "Blazing Saddles"...nuff said.
Watching "Blazing Saddles": Great comedy classic if you love Gene Wilder, Mel Brooks and Harvey Korman. Didn't think I'd ever get to say this in my life, but "they don't make'm like they used to."
I was given the name a of director; not sure what I have to say, only that three of my favorite movies are by this director: Mel Brooks. My favorite of his is without question The Producers, with Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder. Just the opening sequence alone, with Zero and the old ladies is enough to make me cry with laughter. My next favorite is Young Frankenstein with brilliant work by Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Peter Boyle and Cloris Leachman in a great character role. The last of the three is hardly last, though: Blazing Saddles, an outrageous satire of racism and the Old West. To me, the Yiddish speaking Indian chief, played by Mel himself, ordering his warriors to "Loz im gayn!" before turning to another Indian and muttering, "shvartses! dere darker dan us!" was the funniest moment in the movie, but Harvey Korman and Madeline Kahn deserved oscars for their work.

Mel Brooks' raunchy, insane Blazing Saddles had a heck of a time getting out the gate, but when it finally did, oh what a race it ran.

What better way to spend New Years Eve than watching Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle sing 'Puttin' On the Ritz'? We've been schooling Andrew on Mel Brooks movies. Last week was Space Balls. Next up...Blazing Saddles and History of the World
Blazing Saddles (1974) Movie Info Vulgar, crude, and occasionally scandalous in its racial humor, this hilarious bad-taste spoof of Westerns, co-written by Richard Pryor, features Cleavon Little as the first black sheriff of a stunned town scheduled for demolition by an encroaching railroad. Little and co-star Gene Wilder have great chemistry, and the delightful supporting cast includes Harvey Korman, Slim Pickens, and Madeline Kahn as a chanteuse modelled on Marlene Dietrich. As in Young Frankenstein (1974), Silent Movie (1976), and High Anxiety (1977), director/writer Mel Brooks gives a burlesque spin to a classic Hollywood movie genre; in his own manic, Borscht Belt way, Brooks was a central player in revising classic genres in light of Seventies values and attitudes, an effort most often associated with such directors as Robert Altman and Peter Bogdanovich . Some of this film's sequences, notably a gaseous bean dinner around a campfire, have become comedy classics.
Mel Brooks marathon Christmas day on the Sundance channel...Nothing beats Gene Wilder in Young Frankenstein, other than Gene Wilder in Blazing Saddles.

Watching one of Mel Brooks best films, "Blazing Saddles". Watch it and try not to laugh.
What an incredibly intelligent and beautiful woman she was! Happy Birthday Hedy Lamarr!!! It's funny, every time I hear her name, I always think of Mel Brooks iconic movie "Blazing Saddles". Harvey Korman played a corrupt politician named "Hedley Lamarr" and throughout the entire movie, he was constantly referred to as "Hedy Lamarr" irritating him to no end. If you haven't yet sen this movie, you should watch it soon. It turned the page in film making in so many ways, not to mention, you will split a gut from laughing so hard! Governor William J. Le Petomane: Thank you, Hedy, thank you Hedley Lamarr: It's not *Hedy*, it's *Hedley*. Hedley Lamarr. Governor William J. Le Petomane: What the *** are you worried about? This is 1874. You'll be able to sue *her*.
I got home and watched Blazing Saddles directed by Mel Brooks and starring Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn and Dom Deluise.
see Mel Brooks movies. Do yourself a favor and watch Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles. Don't know why I haven't told u B4 now.
Shame that Vincent's dad didn't have the same reaction that Mel Brooks had for Cleavon Little's family in Blazing Saddles.
Blazing Saddles would get so much flack if it came out today. Wouldn't make it to theaters and the great Mel Brooks would be chastised
Any Mel Brooks movie title would be hilarious. Blazing Saddles, The Producers, Young Frankenstein, & my fave: Space Balls.
it's a wonder Mel Brooks doesn't revise Blazing SaddleS for our time... Call it LONESOME PIGEON? signed - Ahead Of The Curve.
Not sure of ur mood, but when I'm depressed, which is like every day, I go watch "Blazing Saddles" by Mel Brooks.
What happened to make us so afraid. You couldn't make a Mel Brooks movie today. I saw Blazing Saddles yesterday
Mel Brooks in Blazing Saddles might be the greatest movie character ever.
All this flap about Paula Deen, from a comment 30 years ago, I wonder where that is suppose to leave Mel Brooks and the cast of "Blazing Saddles"? LOL
Dom Deluise has made appearances in several Mel Brooks films like Blazing Saddles and Robin Hood Men In Tights.
I love Mel Brooks's role as governor in Blazing Saddles
Excellent Documentary on Mel Brooks on WYIN PBS right now. He went on a Major Roll in 1974 with "Blazing Saddles & "Young Frankenstein"
Why isn't Mel Brooks on the discussion panel for ? Blazing Saddles was comic gold?
It's the birthday of comedian and filmmaker Mel Brooks, born Melvin Kaminsky in Brooklyn, New York (June 28, 1926). While Brooks was in the Army in World War II, deactivating mines after the Battle of the Bulge, he was also organizing shows for fellow servicemen. When he returned to the States, he worked as a drummer and pianist in the Catskills, taking over for an ailing stand-up comedian one night. In 1949, Brooks' friend Sid Caesar asked him to write for his comedy program, Your Show of Shows. In 1968, he wrote his first feature film, The Producers. Although the movie didn't do well at the box office, it has been made into a Broadway musical, winning 15 Tony Awards. He's known for off-the-wall comedies such as Blazing Saddles (1974), Young Frankenstein (1974), and Spaceballs (1987). Apparently, during movie shoots, Brooks would hand out white handkerchiefs to the cast and crew to stick in their mouths if they were going to laugh while watching a scene being filmed. He knew the scenes would be funny whe ...
Name a guilty pleasure movie that no matter what your watching while flipping channels you will STILL stop and watch? I'll go first... History of the World Pt.1, Blazing Saddles (pretty anything Mel Brooks), Galaxy Quest... GO! :-)
Happy Birthday to: Melvin James Kaminsky, but most people know him as Mel Brooks, the sheer comedic genius behind so many television programs and motion pictures. Here are just a few titles: "Your Show Of Shows", "Get Smart", "Blazing Saddles", "The Producers", "History Of The World Part One", "Young Frankenstein", and so many more. One of my favorites is the ever-changing, always hilarious colloboration with fellow genius Carl Reiner as "The 2,000-Year Old Man". Gilda Susan Radner, who left us way too soon, but whose legacy will live on in features like "Haunted Honeymoon" (with then-husband Gene Wilder) and "The Woman In Red", and especially the plethora of fabulous characters on "Saturday Night Live" (with previous husband, house band guitarist G.E. Smith). Thank you for all the laughs, Gilda, you were awesome! Noriyuki Morita, who provided hundreds of characters and voices in just about every television program and motion picture over four decades. Always a class act, Pat Morita was also a talented st ...
Not beer related, but tomorrow is Mel Brooks' birthday. Just know that. In fact, go ahead and watch Spaceballs and Blazing Saddles to celebrate. I know I will.
No matter how you may personally feel about Paula Deen, you will have to give her credit for being forthright in her deposition when she was asked point-blank if she had ever used the N-Word. Anyone over the age of 40 has probably, at one time or another used that word. Whether in a joke or in the heat of an argument but you have uttered that word. For the Food Network to do what they did for an utterance 30 years ago is inconceivable and for Smithfield Foods to follow suit is unforgivable. As she said, "I is what I is"...pardon the bad grammar, but she is a product of her environment. Yes. The South used racial slurs much more prevalent then than now. How many of you have seen "Blazing Saddles"? In the first 5 minutes of this movie there are no less than 5 racial epithets/slurs used to describe 2 ethnic races and homosexuals. Are we going to ban Mel Brooks from making movies or keep Slim Pickens or Burton Gilliam from being in other movies because they used the word written by Mel Brooks, Norman Steinber ...
C/o Malcolm Dome @ Classic Rock Magazine 2012. (C) THE JANET MACOSKA TRANSCRIPTS Glasgow rock icon Alex Harvey could have led the way for Zakk Wylde and Slash into making horror movies if he hadn’t passed away in 1982. And in a long-lost interview one of the most theatrical rock frontmen of all time revealed hopes of working with comedy director Mel Brooks, creator of Blazing Saddles and High Anxiety. Come on in to find out more. The acclaimed leader of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band died of a heart attack on tour on February 4, 1982, a day short of his 47th birthday. US-based photographer Janet Macoska, a long-time friend of Harvey’s who received her first professional commission from SAHB in 1974, discovered her interview transcripts while she researched a photo book which has been published to mark the 30th anniversary of Harvey’s death. The conversation reveals an artist approaching the absolute height of his powers. SAHB had already impressed critics with 1973 album Next and were doing the sa ...
Interesting tidbit of information that I just learned. Mel Brooks co-wrote Blazing Saddles with Richard Pryor.
I've been informed by that I should watch Blazing Saddles. I smell a Mel Brooks marathon on the horizon...
The boys and I are watching Blazing Saddles (it's their first time). I had to explain who Randolph Scott was, but not Hedley Lamarr, or Howard Johnson, or Candygrams. Even Sheryl Love, who finds almost nothing funny in a typical Mel Brooks film, made sure she caught every second of Lili Von Schtupp. Darth did ask if Harvey Korman managed to win Best Supporting Actor. I had to tell him it was DeNiro in II, and that Madeline Kahn got the only acting nomination.
AFI is honoring Mel Brooks today on TNT. I say it's about time. I loved ALL of his movies that I've seen (only 2 ), which are History of The World Part 1 and Blazing Saddles, and I pretty much believe they that are all equally as funny as they were then; now (each and every one of them including the ones that I haven't seen). I love his sense of humor in which he makes fun of all ethnicities equally. Just watching this reminds me of a much simpler time and when his type of funny was actually needed.Thanks Mr. Brooks for all the laughs, smiles and giggles. You sir truly deserves this honor.
Glad to see that my favorite producer/director/comedy-writer of all time, Mel Brooks, is getting the AFI Lifetime Achievement Award. I will gladly debate anyone until I am blue in the face that "Young Frankenstein" and "Blazing Saddles" belong in the top-5 funniest movies of all time.
Comedy Genius! AFI lifetime salute to Mel Brooks.clips of 2000 year old man with Carl Reiner - and the Blazing Saddles campfire fart scene.classic comedy!
The AFI salute to Mel Brooks is on TNT, televised I am sure they will not show all the fun rudeness that ensued. Sounded in reading about it, when it was held live, they roasted him hysterically. Two of my fave movies are Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles.puttin' on the Ritz!!
The legendary team of Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder returns in the classic western parody “Blazing Saddles.” See it when it rides into Hollywood tomorrow at 8:00 p.m. Who will be seeing it for the first time?
Happy 80th Birthday to Gene Wilder, the original Willie Wonka!. I personally prefer his role in Blazing Saddles and various other Mel Brooks movies.
Wow, Gene Wilder turns 80 years old this week. Can you believe it? And in just a few weeks, Shout! Factory will be celebrating with a re-issue of his classic Mel Brooks helmed movie, "The Producers" on BD/DVD combo pack. Next to Blazing Saddles, this is one of Wilder's best movies, hands down. So what is YOUR favorite Gene Wilder movie?
Happy Birthday Gene Wilder (born Jerome Silberman) Retired American stage and screen actor, comedian, director, screenwriter, author and activist. Wilder began his career on stage, and made his screen debut in the TV-series Armstrong Circle Theatre in 1962. Although his first film role was portraying a hostage in the 1967 motion picture Bonnie and Clyde, Wilder's first major role was as Leopold Bloom in the 1968 film The Producers for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. This was the first in a series of collaborations with writer/director Mel Brooks, including 1974's Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein, the latter of which garnered the pair an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. Wilder is known for his portrayal of Willy Wonka in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) and for his four films with Richard Pryor: Silver Streak (1976), Stir Crazy (1980), See No Evil, Hear No Evil (1989), and Another You (1991). Wilder has directed and written several ...
Congratulations to Mel Brooks winning the 41st Lifetime Achievement Award at the American Film Institute and very well deserved. Mr. Brooks has done things that no one has done in the industry at least to my knowledge. If anyone disputes that, please let me know I would welcome it, and Loving It! What Mel Brooks brought to the industry whether it was on TV or the Movie Screen it was bringing slap stick humor in his films and I've always admired that. What I remember the most of his films is "Blazing Saddles," and his TV series hit ''Get Smart" and one more time Loving It, that's right folks! There have been other films but I'll mention that on my Classic Film Hall Of Fame stay tuned. Thank you for reading my Shtick, Oy vey what Chutzpah! Thank you family and friends, and God Bless!
Blazing Saddles is on. Gotta love Mel Brooks' humor. Opening scenes: Harvey Korman: "there may be a legal precedent for land snatching (grabs a legal book looks up land). "Land,land.see *** " Cut to scene with Madeline Kahn.Guffaws already...
Mel Brooks has directed more than twenty films, yet he is known primarily for only three of them: The Producers, Blazing Saddles, and Young Frankenstein. People should remember a fourth Brooks film, High Anxiety. High Anxiety stars Brooks as a psychiatrist preparing to take a new job running a sanitarium. Brooks manages to create some wonderfully funny parodies of several Hitchcock films (including Psycho, Vertigo, Spellbound, and North By Northwest), as well as Antonioni's Blow Up. Many of the sequences are beautifully funny, catching the feel of the source material perfectly. The cast is extraordinary. It features many of Brooks' favorite actors including Harvey Korman in a twisted, and sexually bizzare role, Madeline Kahn as the leading lady, and Cloris Leachman in a creepy Nurse Ratched role. Some parts of High Anxiety are a bit slow, and as with all of Brook's films the majority of the gags fall flat; but they keep coming so quickly that you barely notice all the unfunny bits and focus on the funny o ...
Amazon's deal of the day is the Mel Brooks collection on BluRay. For $24, I can own 9 Mel Brooks movies, 3 of which I like quite a bit, another two that i kind of like, and 4 that I have honestly never seen. It's a great deal, but besides my yearly desire to watch Young Frankenstein around Halloween, I'm just not sure I'd ever pop in Blazing Saddles or Spaceballs or Men in Tights. . . .those are usually just movies I find playing on TV when i'm bored and am like, "oh, sure, let's watch that." To buy or not to buy?
Very excited Emma put down "Mel Brooks" as one of her choices to do a presentation for her class. Very disturbed she thought it was a girl named "Melanie" Brooks. Shame on me for not watching Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, History of the World, or Spaceballs with her yet. Must let her experience the finer films...
Blazing Saddles is on Encore... Here's your "mind blown" fact: The role of Bart was intended for Richard Pryor, but due to the controversial nature of Pryor's stand-up routines of the day and his background, Mel Brooks couldn't secure financing for the project with Pryor in that role. So Pryor was made a co-writer of the script, and Cleavon Little played Bart. Pryor later got to star in a different western comedy - Adiós Amigo.
Harvey Korman (Count de Money) , Andrea Voutsinas (Bearnaise) and Mel Brooks (The King) in what I consider to be Brooks' funniest film after "Blazing Saddles...
there must be a way a scene from Mel Brooks' 1974 classic Blazing Saddles
Someone just handed me a paddle ball. I felt like I was in that scene in Blazing Saddles...except I was Mel Brooks, not Harvey Korman.
Watched a PBS American Masters special on Mel Brooks last night. It was very well done...lots of interviews with people he has worked with over the span of his career. LOTS of hilarious clips from his classics...including of course Young Frankenstein One of my all time favorites!) and Blazing Saddles. Does it get any better? Need a laugh today.what are some of your favorite lines from anything by Mel Brooks?
Watching one of Mel Brooks beat movies Blazing Saddles laughing my *** off
Much like my 100 favorite movies list, this one is equally difficult. I decided to base this off of the amount of quality films, admiration for their choices, ability to generate true performances out of actors, and artistic style. This is in order by the way. Please check out some of the lesser known directors as well as EVERYONE in my top 10, as ill also choose my 3 favorite films for each director. 1. Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas, Raging Bull, The King of Comedy) 2. David Cronenberg (Dead Ringers, The Fly, Videodrome) 3. Stanley Kubrick (Dr. Strangelove, Eyes Wide Shut, The Shining) 4. Alfred Hitchcock (Rear Window, Psycho, Vertigo) 5. Sam Raimi (Spider-Man 2, Evil Dead II, A Simple Plan) 6. Joel and Etan Cohen (Miller's Crossing, Fargo, Barton Fink) 7. Mel Brooks (Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, The Producers) 8. Akira Kurosawa (Seven Samurai, Throne of Blood, Ran) 9. Sam Peckinpah (Straw Dogs, The Wild Bunch, The Getaway) 10. Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog M ...
Mel Brooks on American Masters--lovin' it! One of my all time favorite writers talking about how he did his thing. And my prof Norman Steinberg talks Blazing Saddles!
The more I see people being overly sensitive the more I think, Mel Brooks would never have been able make Blazing Saddles.
What's that 'Noise' you hear? It's Mel Brooks PBS documentary follows his long, funny trip from 'Blazing Saddles' ...
Just saw Blazing Saddles on the big screen and all I can say is: Cleavon Little was HOT . . . And Gene Wilder needs to read me bedtime stories. . . And Madeline Kahn is a genius, same with Harvey Korman and Mel Brooks and the little old lady. . .
I didn't know this. In fact, despite my Old Movie Buff-inity, my first encounter was from from Mel Brooks and Blazing Saddles, with the Harvey Korman character correcting folks about his name, it's HEDLEY La Marr!
Blog update time! the 7th installment from "Case of the Ruins" about my trip to Peru: The Huddle We unzip the tent and run to the shack where we had eaten dinner. We scour for blankets and a dry place to sleep. After our nipples started making chattering noises we realized that the shack (with no doors) was colder then the tent. We grab 3 of the small stools that had been used at dinner and rush them back to the tent. Within our shivering madness we knew we had to do something. It was time for “the Huddle”. We positioned the chairs into a triad and sat facing each other and proceeded into an awkward huddle. Darvin smartly suggested that we put the one non-soaked sleeping bag over our heads, which we did. Unfortunately all 3 of us are equipped with blazing-ly fast digestive systems, and when I say blazing, I mean it. So here we are, recreating a scene from Mel Brook’s Blazing Saddles where they eat beans around a campfire. Each horn that blew caused for a retreat outside of the blanket, which caused ...
Blazing Saddles is one of the most ridiculous movies. Shouldn't expect anything less from Mel Brooks. Also, I love Gene Wilder!
AMC double feature: Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein... well there goes my evening! I love Mel Brooks
"Blazing Saddles" and "Young Frankenstein" are on back-to-back on AMC. I had to check if Mel Brooks or Gene Wilder had died today.
I really think they should've cast Mel Brooks as the dad, doing the voice of the Indian chief from Blazing Saddles.
I'm feeling a Mel Brooks binge coming on. just watched The Producers now I'm watching High Anxiety. I think Blazing Saddles should be next.
Sunday night ends with fat boy watching Blazing Saddles. Luvs me some Mel Brooks movies.

Top 5 Time Travel Destination: Being in the same room with Mel Brooks and Richard Pryor while they wrote Blazing Saddles.
I believe Mel Brooks would use codpieces on horses during Blazing Saddles.
I would like to see the Governor from The Walking Dead run against Mel Brooks as the Governor in Blazing Saddles.

If you haven't seen Mel Brooks' stuff, go there first. Blazing Saddles, Men In Tights, Space balls, Young Frankenstein, etc
With all the political correctness and the wussification of the country,a classic like Mel Brooks "Blazing Saddles" can never be made today.
Blazing Saddles. You can never go wrong with Mel Brooks and you can never go wrong with Gene Wilder. 8/10.
Film 16:Blazing Saddles. Mel Brooks in all his wonderful Mel Brooksy glory: a poorly-edited ahead-of-its-time piece of brilliant.
Mel Brooks admits he's working on a "Blazing Saddles" Broadway show. Bring on the Yiddish-speaking Native Americans!

Excuse me while I whip this out... "Mel Brooks is making a Broadway adaption of "Blazing Saddles""
“Mel Brooks: Blazing SaddleS Musical is 'Almost There'... PLEASE PLEASE we must see!!
Yes, Mel Brooks is still working on a 'Blazing Saddles' musical (and a slasher film, too)
Best news I have heard all day!,"Mel Brooks: Blazing SaddleS Musical is 'Almost There'...
Mel Brooks is working on a slasher film. And the Blazing SaddleS musical. Separate projects.
you've never seen Blazing Saddles? It's a Mel brooks movie. Same kind of music and really racist. It's a comedy movie. A classic
Conclusion of week 4 of session demands levity. Weekend Mel Brooks film fest begins now with Blazing Saddles
What is your all time favorite comedy movie? — Blazing Saddles yes I went old school Mel Brooks.
aye true! Although he reminds me of Mel Brooks character from Blazing Saddles so a bat and ball and fumble
(sad) In the current politically correct America, Mel Brooks classic "The Producers" and "Blazing Saddles" would never be made. Thoughts?
One more for Doug: Eventually moved onto Beverly. Around the corner was (I don't know if it's still there) Factor's Deli. When he was working at 20th, you'd typically see Mel Brooks eating there, often with several others including Gene Wilder. They had all of Brook's Movie posters on the walls. Blazing Saddles was filmed in part up by Agua Dulce/Acton. I kept a horse up in Acton for years at a friend's place. You know the TOS episode filmed at Vasquez Rocks in Agua Dulce. Shatner vs. guy in Lizard suit! :)
wish Mel Brooks used the word 'Sheriff' or 'BadGuy' in famous Blazing Saddles "Nobody move" clip, how perfect 2 illustrt CQustr!
its a qoute from the movie Blazing Saddles. Check it out its a old Mel Brooks movie. Hurumph
Blazing Saddles: social commentary & slapstick farcity at its finest! Love you, Mel Brooks. Come back to tv, Dave Chappelle & Dom Deluise & Gene Wilder. RIP Gilda Radner: "What's all this talk about endangered feces???" LOL. "Fagalists? Call the Locksmith!"
There's this one scene in "Django Unchained" that's pure Blazing Saddles. Tarentino's tribute to Mel Brooks?
Mel Brooks quote from Blazing Saddles, work, work, work! Remember the scene? Hope yours is as much fun as his.

Mel Brooks on Immortality, His Inspiration for The Producers, and the Racial Joke Left Out of Blazing Saddles
39 years ago today, the movie "Blazing Saddles" starring Gene Wilder, and directed by Mel Brooks was released in theaters.
Blazing Saddles released 39 years ago today. Django Unchained owes as much to Mel Brooks & Richard Pryor as it does to Sergio Corbucci
My parents bought a Betamax in the late 1970's betting it would be the hardware of choice to view classic films that you could now own. Of course they bet wrong and VHS became the dominant player (much like blu ray vs HD). We owned only 3 movies when production was halted and Blazing Saddles was one of them, I must have watched this film 50-75 times over & over. Django Unchained is good but in my opinion is extremely derivative of this Mel Brooks classic and can hardly compare. That said what became of Cleavon Little?
"We don't need no stinking badges!" Blazing Saddles (Mel Brooks) Well as it turns out, we do need stinking badges. iphone app
Mel Brooks is on the NRA enemies list? I guess someone still feels hurt by Blazing Saddles.
In bed watching Blazing Saddles. I do love this film. 😊 In fact I generally love Mel Brooks films.
"I was watching [Mel Brooks's comedy classic] Blazing Saddles with Mom and Dad," Max Brooks once recalled, "and Harvey Korman slaps Madeline Kahn and says 'Shut up you Teutonic *** ' My dad [Mel Brooks] leaned over and gently said, 'Don't ever tell your teacher that.'"
Even a Mel Brooks movie like Blazing Saddles.another classic...just my twisted sense of humour.
Just watched Blazing Saddles again. I laughed and laughed almost more than the 153 times I've seen it before. Felt good to watch a really funny movie. That ought to hold me till Stolen Identity comes out with Jason Bateman and Melissa Mccarthy in Feb. A Mel Brooks movie has always put me in a good mood. I wish he was still making movies.
Mel Brooks is the original Tarantino only difference is Blazing Saddles was supposed to be funny.
The first hour of Django Unchained owes a lot to Blazing Saddles; scenes worthy of the great Mel Brooks himself.
"Any which way you look at it, Mel Brooks did it better with Blazing Saddles." My friend on
Blazing Saddles is one of the best comedies of all time, Gene Wilder working with Mel Brooks? Too perfect.
"Django Unchained" is Tarantino being bitter that Mel Brooks got to direct "Blazing Saddles" and he didnt.
Like most remakes, Tarantino's version of the Mel Brooks classic, Blazing Saddles, isn't nearly as funny.
Yes! Directed by Mel Brooks, who directed Blazing Saddles, which I've been trying to get you to watch!
Mel Brooks' secretary in Blazing Saddles? She's 72 now. Remember that next time you watch it.
Blazing Saddles would have to be the least politically correct film ever made. Mel Brooks: genius.
Dear mel brooks did you know the significance of Harriet Johnson when she was named in Blazing Saddles or was it an amazing coincdence ?
Mel Brooks' brilliant Blazing Saddles is on ITV4 now
Sitting down to Blazing Saddles. Mel Brooks classic! Waiting for that farting scene round the camp fire! A Pyrotechnics bonanza! :p
Blazing Saddles on ITV 4, absolute classic. Mel Brooks best, watch, but go easy on the beans.
Aww, I already own Blazing Saddles! lol. Just that one or do you dislike all Mel Brooks films (I have box set..)
Mel Brooks still working on Blazing Saddles as Bway musical,thinks timing is right "now that Django Unchained has used the N word"
One of our all-time fav movies. Mel Brooks talks Blazing Saddles musical:
Im curious if found Blazing Saddles offensive. Might be because Mel Brooks is Jewish.
