Event description
Mendocino Film Festival Classic Film Series presents Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles. 7:00pm Wed, Oct. 2nd @ Coast Cinemas in Fort Bragg.

About this Event

Gene Wilder and Mel Brooks in a western satire… do you need any further motivation to see a film?! Are you ready to choke with laughter at the endlessly quotable lines? Are you prepared to be offended... at least once? That was not Mel Brooks' true intention when he made the film although he does have a flair for controversy. It's important to appreciate that audiences at the time (1974) were more open to seeing humor and parody as a means of making fun of people or institutions and not so easily offended when it was done effectively.

The film is clearly a parody of the not so subtle racism inherent in most old westerns. Blazing Saddles makes the main character Little, the African American sheriff, smarter than the racist locals (including the mayor), and the film’s resolution truly turns the tables. Mel Brooks mocks the racists not as evil but simply as being ignorant idiots. Why not come see the film and decide for yourself, plus… we promise you are going to laugh, a lot!

Thanks to the sponsors of Blazing Saddles - Golden West Saloon in Fort Bragg, Robert D. Bruce DDS in Fort Bragg, KOZT-FM & Mendocino Film Festival.

Please remember to arrive no later than 15 mins before the start time if you want to insure you get a seat. Thanks.
