"Excuse me while I whip this out..."

I love Young Frankenstein. I do.

However, I have watched Blazing Saddles hundreds of times over since I was about 4 years old. It is crass and hilarious. It is...

"Mongo only pawn...in game of LIFE."

"Give the Governor a HARUMPH!!!"

"I'm not a wabbit!/ I need some weeeeessssttttt!!!"

Hedley Lamarr: Qualifications?
Applicant: Rape, murder, arson, and rape.
Hedley Lamarr: You said rape twice.
Applicant: I like rape.


I can understand not "getting" Young Frankenstein. However, if you don't get Blazing Saddles...God save your poor soul.

I do like The Producers a lot. Never had the inclination to watch the re-make.

Blazing saddles still cracks me up though. Purile and fantastic.

Easily Blazing Saddles, followed closely behind by History Of The World. In my younger days, it was all about Space Balls and Robin Hood. I've seen Silent Movie once, I'm sure if I saw it again now I'd get more of the jokes.

I'll bet your version is sublime, simply sublime, Burun.

It's as good, possibly better than my version of Von LMO's "Future Language."

Long live heavy metal.

Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles are not only my favorite Mel Brooks movies, but in my top 10 all-time.

Bart: [quickly] Let's play chess.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: I was talking about the luggage.

I love Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein as anyone with a shred of a sense humor would. But for me, it's High Anxiety. It's a really well-executed Hitchcock parody and the theme song is brilliant.

I have seen exactly none of these movies all the way through. A lot of "History of the World", a bit of "Blazing Saddles". None of the others.

It's making this thread enjoyable to read.

Frau Blücher: Would the doctor care for a brandy before retiring?
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: No. Thank you.
Frau Blücher: Some varm milk... perhaps?
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: No... thank you very much. No thanks.
Frau Blücher: Ooo-val-tine?

Bef...BEF! You must do yourself a favor and rectify this. I suggest "Young Frankenstein" first.

Fuck that. Do it in chronological order. End with Spaceballs, if you feel daring. Or end with History of the World: Part 1 if you want to leave with a perfect impression. You can skip Silent Movie. Probably even High Anxiety if you felt like it.

1. The Producers (1968)
2. The Twelve Chairs (1970)
3. Blazing Saddles (1974)
4. Young Frankenstein (1974)
5. Silent Movie (1976)
6. High Anxiety (1977)
7. History of the World: Part I (1981)
8. Spaceballs (1987)
