August 14 – “Blazing Saddles

Credit Warner Bros.

“Excuse me while I whip this out.”

Is this the funniest movie ever made? Can we even begin to describe the plot? Do we need to? The answers are Maybe, No, and No. Mel Brooks’ parody of the Hollywood Western broke new ground in its depictions of race, class, and flatulence on screen. And there’s a pie fight. Nuff said. 93 minutes, Rated R.
