What happens when you combine the comic genius of Eddie Murphy with Dan Aykroyd and director John Landis? You get a timeless comedy classic laced with sidesplitting, satiric humor.

When the truth comes out, the consequences are sheer comedy gold!

Director: Mel Brooks Run Time: 93 min. Format: Digital Rating: R Release Year: 1974
Starring: Cleavon Little, Dom DeLuise, Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Slim Pickens
The railroad's got to run through the town of Rock Ridge. How do you drive out the townfolk in order to steal their land? Send in the toughest gang you've got ... and name a new sheriff who'll last about 24 hours. But that's not really the plot of "Blazing Saddles," just the pretext. Once Mel Brooks' lunatic film that many call his best gets started, logic is lost in a blizzard of gags, jokes, quips, puns, howlers, growlers and outrageous assaults upon good taste or any taste at all. Cleavon Little as the new lawman, Gene Wilder as the wacko Waco Kid, Brooks himself as a dim-witted politico and Madeline Kahn in her Marlene Dietrich send-up that earned her an Academy Award nomination all give this sagebrush saga their lunatic best. And when "Blazing Saddles" can't contain itself at the finale, it just proves the Old West will never be the same!
