If you know your comedies, then Mel Brooks’ 1974 Blazing Saddles will be on that list … and for many it will be right at the top!
Warner Home Video announced this past week that a 40th anniversary edition of this comedy satire will be released as a Blu-ray special edition on May 6.
Bonus features include Mel Brooks’ previously prepared commentary of his film — loaded with insights and humor — a newly prepared featurette titled “Blaze of Glory: Mel Brooks’ Wild, Wild West,” plus deleted scenes, the documentary titled “Back in the Saddle” and the 1975 television pilot, Black Bart, starring Lou Gossett Jr., Steve Landesberg, Millie Slavin and Gerrit Graham.
