one of my top ten movies ever-for sure. mel brooks is so amazing. i still remember the theatre i saw blazing saddles and the friends i saw it with. and you know how long ago that was!
Last year on my blog, I talked about how "Trading Places" was one of the first movies we ever had on video (and watched endlessly until we knew every line). "Blazing Saddles" was the other one. Last summer, I came across both those movies at the thrift store and brought them home and laughed my ass off with my kids. After all these years, I still "get a kick" out of that movie.
They don't make 'em like that anymore!
I needed that laugh.
I have always been a big Mel Brooks fan. I was so sad when Anne Bancroft passed away. They seemed like a happy couple. Brooks has such a way of making social commentary funny. I know you're enjoying the fall weather and scenery.
