Blazing Saddles (1974)

by Milos Itic on March 5, 2012

One classic comedy by parody filmmaker Mel Brooks. This is such a funny film. From the opening scene along the railroad tracks and 2 main actors riding off into the sunset to till the end of crew fight, this film is enjoyable.

Blazing saddles western parodyParody on western films, and everything in USA cinematography.

Bart: What’s your name?
Jim: Well, my name is Jim, but most people call me… Jim.

Roger Ebert said this after he watched the film:

There are some people who can literally get away with anything — say anything, do anything — and people will let them. Other people attempt a mildly dirty joke and bring total silence down on a party. Mel Brooks is not only a member of the first group, he is its lifetime president.
