About this item

"Blazing Saddles" - The railroad's got to run through the town of Rock Ridge. How do you drive out the townfolk in order to steal their land? Send in the toughest gang you've got... and name a new sheriff who'll last about 24 hours. But that's not really the plot of "Blazing Saddles," just the pretext. Once Mel Brooks' lunatic film - many call it his best - gets started, logic is lost in a blizzard of gags, jokes, quips, puns, howlers, growlers and outrageous assaults upon good taste or any taste at all. Cleavon Little as the new lawman, Gene Wilder as the wacko Waco Kid, Brooks himself as a dim-witted politico and Madeline Kahn in her Marlene Dietrich send-up that earned an Academy Award nomination all give this sagebrush saga their lunatic best. And when "Blazing Saddles" can't contain itself at the finale, it just proves the Old West will never be the same! "High Anxiety" - Mel Brooks' renowned spoof of the most famous Hitchcockian classics - "Vertigo," "The Birds," "Psycho" and "Spellbound" - is one of his most outrageous comedy classics. After a Harvard psychiatrist (Brooks) takes over the Psycho-Neurotic Institute for the Very, Very Nervous, he realizes his predecessor died under suspicious circumstances. When events take a murderous turn, he is accused of the crime and left with a full blown case of High Anxiety. Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman and Cloris Leachman co-star in this hilarious parody. "History Of The World, Part 1" - Mel Brooks' uproarious version of history proves nothing is sacred as he takes us on a laugh-filled look at what really happened throughout time. His delirious romp features everything from a wild send-up of 2001 to the real stories behind the Roman Empire (Brooks portrays a stand-up philosopher at Caesar's Palace), the French Revolution (Brooks reigns as King Louis XVI) and the Spanish Inquisition (a splashy song-and-dance number with monks and swimming nuns.) It's Mel and company at their hilarious best. "Young Frankenstein" - Mel Brooks' monstrously crazy tribute to Mary Shelley's classic pokes hilarious fun at just about every Frankenstein movie ever made. Summoned by a will to his late grandfather's castle in Transylvania, young Dr. Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) soon discovers the scientist's step-by-step manual explaining how to bring a corpse to life. Assisted by the hunchback Igor (Marty Feldman) and the curvaceous Ings (Teri Garr), he creates a monster (Peter Boyle) who only wants to be loved. Also includes: "Robin Hood Men In Tights," "Silent Movie," "To Be Or Not To Be," and "Twelve Chairs".

Theatrical Trailer, Audio Commentary, Featurettes, Documentary, TV Spots, Production Stills, Subtitles: English, Spanish.

It's a Mel Brooks Collection, need I say more?!! It doesn't have Spaceballs but that is an easy movie to find at a low price. Why are you still reading?

I purchased this boxed set online for my Father. I already own the set, and knew that he would enjoy it as much as I do. It is a good representation of Mel Brooks' work. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has ever enjoyed his clever comedy.
