Classic Film: Blazing Saddles

Location: Taylor Little Theatre
Nov 3, 2013 @ 2:00 PM

Occasionally scandalous in its humor, this hilarious bad-taste spoof of Westerns features Cleavon Little as the first black sheriff of a stunned town. Writer and director Mel Brooks gives a burlesque spin to a classic Hollywood movie genre. Prior to the screening, jump back in time as we play news clips, cartoons and more from 1974, the year of the film's release. Considered one of the must-see movies of the ‘70s, Blazing Saddles screens on Nov. 3 at 2 p.m. at Taylor Little Theatre. Learn more.

All tickets are $1 and directly benefit the Mercyhurst History Club. Tickets can only be purchased on the day of the screening. For more information, call 814-824-3000 or visit
