Facebook Commentary: Blazing Saddles

This was my commentary for Blazing Saddles. I did it on Facebook as Status updates and some people commented.

Carl Towns ‎"C'mon, what about a good ol' n***** work song?"-Blazing Saddles is currently playing. I'll be doing facebook commentary.

Carl Towns Slim Pickens has arrived and shit is awesome. "We can't afford to send horses. Send a couple of n*****s."
Jay Jay Keep them shits comin'!

Carl Towns Slim Pickens got his name from his time in the rodeo. He actually started at age 12 and was a rather successful rodeo clown.

Carl Towns ‎"Dont just lay there getting a sun tan. It won't do you no good anyhow." ... Cleavon Little just knocked dat cracker out GOOD! Now enter Heady Lamarr. I mean Headly...

Carl Towns Boris the hangsman was played by legendary voice actor
Robert Ridgely. But most impressively in Robin Hood... Men In Tights! ... as the Hangman.

Carl Towns Little's last appearance was a guest part on an episode of Tales from the Crypt

Carl Towns Right now is the sacking of Rock Ridge. Or called a number 6.

Carl Towns So, is everyone in town related to one another. Their all Johnsons I believe.

Carl Towns Fought Dix! Remember when Richard Dix tried to take over this town?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Dix

Carl Towns Just did a search. the smoking redhead whose the Mayors assistant in the movie is Robyn Hilton. That took longer than expected.

Carl Towns Didn't help I didn't catch the characters name.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0385301/

Carl Towns ‎"Drop it! Or I swear I'll blow this n*****'s head all over the town."
"Lordy lord! Do what he say?"
Little takes himself hostage to avoid getting shot by white people. Awesome!

Carl Towns Oh, there was Hiltons name on the wiki page. Damn I'm blind...

Carl Towns Jim, aka "The Waco Kid". Epicness.

Carl Towns Since you are my guest, what would you like to do?"-Sheriff
"Oh, I don't know. Play chess... screw..."-Kid
"Let's play chess."-Sheriff

Carl Towns Hedly Lamarr vs. Hedy Lamarr. "What the hell are you worried about? This is 1874, you'll be able to sue her!"
Joke explained.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedy_Lamarr

Carl Towns Why the fuck the black folks always coming up the rear of the the wagon trail?

Carl Towns I never really liked the baked bean farting scene. Hits to close to home...

Carl Towns Mongo!!!!

Carl Towns Madeline Kahn as Lili von Shtupp, the Teutonic Titwillow was nominated for the movie. poor Headly, he really thought he had the Oscar nom but the critics always pick German tramps.

Carl Towns The black man is about to put it down on some hot german piece right now.

Carl Towns The studio wanted to cut the baked bean flatulence scene, Mongo punching a horse and the use of the word n*****. None of which was cut because Mel had final cut approval.
Be Randy then the movie woulda sucked.... then what would we laugh at?
Carl Towns The studio for being punk ass bitches.

Carl Towns Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder were both second choices for their respective parts. Originally Richard Pryor for the Sheriff and Gig Young for Waco Kid. But studio objected to Pryor due to his admitted drug use and Gig Young was replaced because of his alcohol issues.

Carl Towns You said rape twice."-Lamarr
"I like rape."-Criminal

Carl Towns ‎"Hey, where the white women at?"
You can use it anywhere, anytime, no matter who you are, including a gay man. It'll be funny no matter what.

Carl Towns Badges, we don't need no stinking badges?-Mexicans and me and Anime Expo 2010.

Carl Towns The big brawls coming up.
Must say, this was a finely cast flick. I'm still mulling over which comedy I like more, this of Holy Grail.

Carl Towns
The scene with the John Wayne lookalike is coming up. Wayne actually met Brooks in the WB commissary and liked the script but said it wouldn't fit his image. Said he'd be "first in line to see the movie, though."

Carl Towns Jewish Hitler. lol! Its funny because its also true.

Carl Towns
Wiki statement that might not be true: The film grossed $119.5 million in the box office becoming only the
tenth film in history up to that point to pass the $100 million mark

Carl Towns ‎2006 the film was selected by National Film Registry for preservation. Also, there was series pilot filmed based on the film called Black Bart that wasn't picked up starring future Academy award winner Louis Gossett Jr. It appears on one of the special DVD/Blu-Ray editions.

Carl Towns See, I can do facts and quote lines...
All my facts I just snatch from wikipedia though because I plagiarize! Fuck yeah!
Brian Tyson Dude, you're out of control
Carl Towns And thats a bad thing?

Carl Towns BTW, a TV version spin off of Blazing Saddles? Really? Without the use of the word n*****? Thats just fuckin' stupid. But Louis Gossett is a cool cat and was awesome in Enemy Mine and the good Punisher flick.

Carl Towns ‎"What about An Officer and a Gentleman? The move he won the Oscar for?"
I usually try to avoid movies with Richard Gere. I can't talk about ti, it's personal.

Carl Towns Actually first really took interest when I saw some AFI countdown about comedies. I starred everything on the list that looked good in my cinema class. Yet, still haven't seen Some Like It Hot and TCM shows it at least once a month.


MY BAD: Carl Towns okay... it seems Hitler may not have had Jewish ancestry... Its just part of his lineage is unknown as his father was an illegitimate child.

I wish I'd been on facebook this day, this is fucking epic.

One of my favorite movies EVER. (I love Holy Grail, too, but think Blazing Saddles kicks its ass.) Probably in my top five.

You're right: "Where the white women at?" is Always appropriate. (We do that all the time. "Oh boys...")
