Cineplex Classic Film Series gallops into summer with Blazing Saddles (1974) an uproarious, outrageous Western comedy flick from brilliant director Mel Brooks (Robin Hood: Men In Tights, Young Frankenstein, Spaceballs).
Starring the ever talented Gene Wilder and Cleavon Little as an unforgettable comedic duo, Blazing Saddles is the not-so-P.C. story of an arrogant young ex-railroad slave turned Sheriff, his drunken, fastest-hands-in-the-West sidekick, the ignorant bad-ass town they protect, and the sleazy politician out to get them all. True to Mel Brooks’s style, the movie boasts musical numbers, bar fights and countless quotables. Don’t miss this opportunity to see them ride off into the sunset on the big screen.
Each month, Cineplex Classic Film Series brings back to theatre a classic film in digital format. Next month features Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart in John Huston’s The African Queen (1951) (which, for the record was the boat, not the woman).
