Join and The Backlot Perth’s Back to Screen Movie Series next up with BLAZING SADDLES on Sunday, August 6 at 1.30pm (movie kicks off at 2pm) at The Backlot Perth.

The railroad’s got to run through the town of Rock Ridge. How do you drive out the town folk in order to steal their land? Send in the toughest gang you’ve got…and name a new sheriff who’ll last about 24 hours. But that’s not really the plot of Blazing Saddles, just the pretext. Once Mel Brooks’ rowdy film, many call it his best, gets started, logic is lost in a blizzard of gags, jokes, quips, puns, howlers, growlers and outrageous assaults upon good taste or any taste at all. Cleavon Little as the new lawman, Gene Wilder as the wacko Waco Kid, Brooks himself as a dimwitted politico and Madeline Kahn in her Marlene Dietrich send-up that earned her an Academy Award nomination, all give this sagebrush saga their lunatic best. And when Blazing Saddles can’t contain itself at the finale, it just proves the Old West will never be the same!
