Mel Brooks is a comedy icon. His humor is subtle and movies like Blazing Saddles and The Producers have jokes modern audiences wouldn't understand.
Mel Brooks says his classic Western spoof Blazing Saddles would never get made today because of the 'stupidly politically correct' culture.
In honor of comedy legend Gene Wilder, Warner Bros is re-releasing Blazing Saddles and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory this weekend.
It would be hard for the latest Will Ferrell and Adam Sandler movies to live up to these classic gems.
