Badges? We don't need no stinking badges!

(Yes - this originated in this movie.)

@fldeals: Actually, the subtitle of Blazing Saddles is "Never Give a Saga an Even Break".
The Badges line originated from "Treasures of the Sierra Madre". Mel Brooks only paraphrased it.

Fantastic movie with a perfect cast. Trivia for the night : Mel Brooks wanted Richard Pryor to play the sheriff and Gene Wilder was actually second choice to play the Waco Kid.

Oh no, don't do that, don't do that. If you shoot him, you'll just make him mad.

Richard Pryor and Brooks wrote this together, GENIUS at work! The studio would not gamble on Pryor in the lead role due to his "history". Cleavon does a brilliant job... also John Wayne was considered for the part of The Waco Kid, but turned it down due to ... everything. Wayne did say he thought it was funny as get all and would be the first one in line to see the movie. If you have HBO GO check out the Mel Brooks / Dick Cavett interview. REALLY great stuff.

This movie is one of the fondest memories of films my dad sat me down to watch when I was a kid. At the time I lived in Southern California and had a heavy mix of various cultures. I since moved to Northern Kentucky and when I went to let my kids watch this I spent the first 20 minutes explaining to them not to use these words and what they meant. lol Thinking back to that, its probably a teen and up kind of flick, but man did my kids love the campfire scene.

Rick Santorum was paraphrasing Blazing Saddles a few weeks ago when he said " the president is a ni-- "

The joke with Harvey Korman correcting his name "it's Hedley not Heady " originally his character's name was going to be Heady Lamar but the actress Heady Lamar would not allow Brooks permission to use her name.

Shows $9.49 for me :( I get so darn tired of Amazon #@*# with prices! They waste more money raising and lowering prices than any company I know. Great movie though.
