Blazing Saddles 50th Anniversary

SHOWTIMES

Sun 6/9: 3:30p

Mel Brooks’ 1974 comedy classic is back on the big screen for the 50th anniversary! Not only that, but it's also in celebration of what would have been Cleavon Little's 85th birthday and Gene Wilder's 91st birthday, both born in June. Don't forget to look for Cleavon's medallion on our Oklahoma Walk of Fame in front of the theater - he was born in Chickasha!

In this satirical take on Westerns, crafty railroad worker Bart (Cleavon Little) becomes the first black sheriff of Rock Ridge, a frontier town about to be destroyed in order to make way for a new railroad. Initially, the people of Rock Ridge harbor a racial bias toward their new leader. However, they warm to him after realizing that Bart and his perpetually drunk gunfighter friend (Gene Wilder) are the only defense against a wave of thugs sent to rid the town of its population.
