I don't think those are Madeline Kahn's cans.

ClavellBCMI: "You said rape twice!"

"I like rape".

... and thus was a Fark meme born.


One of many. At least a half dozen, I'd reckon.

jso2897: I'd give it "first interracial buddy comedy". The first interracial buddy movie was The Defiant Ones.


Which is exactly what TFA says.

wildcardjack: Not just interracial buddy, but interracial cop buddy genre. There could be no Lethal Weapon or Die Hard 3 without Blazing Saddles. Or maybe there could, I don't know, I'm not too hot on the buddy movies of the late 70's and 80's.


not a cop movie but did everyone forget the TV show Ispy with Cosby and Culp in the 60's

My answer is "The Little Colonel" and that's that. Shirley Temple and Bill "Bojangles" Robinson were "buddies," right?

I've always heard that line was cut from the movie.  I think the last time I watched it it wasn't in the movie. Is that true?

Flappyhead: stoli n coke: "There I was, standing face to face, with a six-year old kid. Well, after that, I just threw down my gun and walked away. Little bastard shot me in the ass."

"How's that hand look?"

"Steady as a rock."

"Yeah but I shoot with this one."


I pictured it in my head.... I love that scene.

I have Blazing Saddles on HD-DVD. It's ace. There are loads of language options on the disc so I sometimes set it up in French with English subtitles so I can pretend I'm watching a poncy foreign film.

I remember seeing Blazing Saddles when it first aired on CBS in the early 80s.  They left all the n-words in but the fart sounds in the campfire scene were edited out.  And to think they now allow fart jokes on kid shows now.

"Now, four decades on, it remains as biting a satire as ever, and its impact on Hollywood can still be felt."

And it's quoted on Fark's Politics tab or a nearly daily basis.
