    Win a copy of “Blazing Saddles: 40th Anniversary Edition” on Blu-Ray

    Blazing SaddlesIt’s been four decades since the release of what’s been called the most offensively funny movie of all time. Mel Brooks’ iconic Blazing Saddles is ranked as one of the American Film Institute’s best comedies of all time – and if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re missing out.

    Co-Written by Richard Pryor, Blazing Saddles is the ultimate spoof on the Western film genre, highlighting the induction of an unlikely Sheriff (portrayed by Cleavon Little) in the town of Rock Ridge. The film also features Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman and Brooks himself. This film abandons all hope of common decency in a blur of jokes, gags and puns on top of completely outrageous assaults upon good taste – and it’s awesome.

    To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the funniest movie ever made, the special edition Blazing Saddles: 40th Anniversary Blu-ray will be available May 6th. This special box set includes an all new featurette starring Brooks as well as commentary, deleted scenes, a theatrical trailer and much more. Read More
