Blazing Saddles (1974) – 3.5/5
Very funny, but not as fast paced as I remembered. I think in today’s terms it wd be considered a slow movie. There’s a musical number that probably killed when it was new and now seemed to drag on too long.
I still found it creative and witty and juvenille and silly at the same time.
I’m not sure Gene Wilder pulled of the ‘cool’ of the character as he needed to. Also, I can’t believe the freedom of the ‘N’ word they took in this movie.
The DVD has a pilot of a show based on Black Bart – I didn’t much as apparently no one did.
Anyway, it’s funny and dumb as you wd expect/remember.
