Summary
Widescreen presentation,( aspect ratio 2.40:1). Never give a saga an even break! Blazing Saddles is an iconoclastic, not-politically-correct parody; one of the 1970s most successful, and popular films. Is every clichéd element from every Western ever made, turned upside down and inside out, but featuring all the familiar caricatures, eh, characters of the genre: a dance-hall girl, a gunslinger, a sheriff, and a town full of pure folk. Mel Brooks redefined film comedy, and proved that even sophomoric, scatological humor could be used to ridicule prejudice, injustice, and apathy
