Blazing Saddles 40th Anniversary

As Og pointed out, today, February 7 is the 40th, yes, 40th anniversary, of the release of Blazing Saddles.  Oy, 40 years and I still laugh!  The humor definitely does not get old!


 That's Hedley!




One of my favorite scenes with the incomparable Madeline Kahn....

We love Blazing Saddles here at the casa. It was my FIL's favorite movie. At least 40 yrs ago Brooks was able to make this film. No one would allow it to get made in this Politically (in)Correct environment...

Monkey: Agreed. There is no way they could have done this in today's climate.

NFO: Unfortunately, yes. And Mongo is only pawn in game of life, as we all feel sometimes....
