Great Release

on 12/24/2011

I remember buying this dvd when it first came out. I had to have this version for the special features. I love the commentary that Mel Brooks does on specific scenes. The documentaries are extremely informative. I eventually got around to watching the pilot for the proposed spinoff Black Bart. It wasn't great, but was interesting to watch. The movie looks and sounds great. This really is the best version on dvd. Read More

The best spoof of all time

on 5/21/2012

Really one of the best movies of all time. Making fun of the stupidity of racism while making you laugh so hard you pee yourself. I didn't realize that Richard Pryor was one of the screen writers until watching the extras. Read More

Editors Note
Note A 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.
