And for those who’d like to watch in German:
(Every since I saw him in that stupid movie, I've always though he was an idiot.)
loved this show
Never seen the movie but have the title song on a CD of music from great Western shows and films. It’s a great, rousing song!
Blazing Saddles was only 8 years behind this movie.
Seth McFarlane has a new movie coming out (this summer?) called “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” It actually looks pretty funny. Unfortunately, I read that Bill Maher may be in it, so that’s bound to understandably turn folks away.
Arg! Blazing Saddles was 9 years after.
One of my all time favorites!
Donald Pleasance as “Oracle”: “THERE......NOW I SEE IT! LMAO.
Whenever I make a “dead solid prediction” I always preface it with “Oracle speaks.” My accuracy is about the same. And I’m a taxpayer and a good Republican!
“The Hallelujah Trail” plays like a G-rated, family friendlier version of “Blazing Saddles”(not so much plot-wise but genre-wise). It’s well worth seeing.
Great lines from Pleasance and Keith.
I rented this a few years ago from Netflix. I didn’t really like it much, but the music was the best part.
The movie is not a great film by any means. It’s too long, too loud, and too overblown. Very much like Mad Mad World in that regard. But if you like camp as much as I do, it’s very enjoyable. Love Donald Pleasance and David Keith is this one. I have it on DVD and play it every so often, usually when I know my wife will be out for a while.
The barrels of booze bubble back up at the end.
LOL! Yep, this is an oldie, but a goodie. Haven't seen it for years, though. I do remember it was funny.
