Western Movie Matinees: Laughing Out Loud – Blazing Saddles

Mel Brooks has become the master of parody of all genres in his TV shows and films ranging from The Producers (1967) and Young Frankenstein (1974) to Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993). In Blazing Saddles, Brooks creates nonstop humor, farce and slapstick with Oklahoma-born actor Cleavon Little as a black sheriff, along with a drunken deputy played by Gene Wilder. The two are hired by a group of shady characters trying to take over a small Western town through which they hope to run a railroad. 93 minutes. Appropriate for adults only.

Western Movie Matinees: Frontier Clergy – Brigham Young

Fleeing persecution, Latter-Day Saints church leader Brigham Young (Dean Jagger) leads a wagon train of Mormons west in search of a peaceful place to settle. But is it really to God’s revelation he is responding, or is it his own ambition? And are the hardships along the way signs of God’s displeasure?  Headlined by romantic leads Tyrone Power and Linda Darnell, what this film lacks in historical accuracy, it makes up in entertainment value. 114 minutes. Appropriate for ages 10+.
