Walk of Fame 50th Anniversary! Discussion between films with Mel Brooks.
Double Feature: BLAZING SADDLES, 1974, Warner Bros., 93 min. Director Mel Brooks’ third film as director took his politically-incorrect humor (with a screenplay co-written by Richard Pryor) to new levels of hilarity. A corrupt politician appoints a black sheriff to cause havoc in a Western town, but is surprised when the new lawman (Cleavon Little) becomes a force to be reckoned with. With Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn and Harvey Korman.
SILENT MOVIE, 1976, 20th Century Fox, 87 min. Director Mel Brooks plays a washed-up film director who sees a new silent film production as the way to save both his career and Hollywood, and he enlists the aid of pals Dom DeLuise and Marty Feldman.
