Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month. Free and open to public.
Who can forget Lily von Shtupp and her Berlin 1933-with-comical-Nazis shtick, or the Johnsons or Rock Ridge, or Governor Williams J LePetomane and his sidekick Hedley Lamarr, or the yiddish speaking Indian? Nobody, that’s who. Blazing Saddles the greatest movie Mel Brooks ever made, besides Young Frankenstein, which we couldn’t get. THE SECOND GREATEST MEL BROOKS MOVIE.
But you’ve seen it, right? If not, shame on you! If so, bet it hasn’t been in a long time. Mel Brooks did everything in this amazing movie, and it’s a joy to behold. Trigger warning, there’s a lot of the “N-word”. Things have changed a lot since 1974, but I think this send up of racist cowboy pictures holds up pretty well.
And it is still hilarious. The usual Brooks suspects are along for the ride: Harvey Korman, Gene Wilder, and Madeline Kahn as the aforementioned Ms. Von Shtupp. Come join us for a viewing of this comedy classic, Friday November 3rd at 7:30 pm. at the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library. It’ll be awesome. And free.
