Southside Comedy Film Festival – Blazing Saddles (15)

Sat 12 Mar 2016| 7:30 pm- 10:00 pm

- £5 – £6

Southside Film brings you Mel Brook’s 1974 comedy classic BLAZING SADDLES!

A blisteringly hysterical satire of Hollywood’s mythologising of the Old West, Blazing Saddles sees Cleavon Little as Sherrif Bart, the first black sheriff in a rough and tumble town set for demolition to make way for the expanding railway. Teaming up with drunken gunslinger Jim ‘the Waco Kid’ (Gene Wilder), Sheriff Bart battles to defeat corrupt politician Hedley Lamarr (Harvey Korman) from destroying the town with his gang of thugs. Co-written in part with Richard Pryor, Brooks’ film delivers sidesplitting vulgarity and burlesque absurdity alongside a biting commentary of Hollywood’s racism, making Blazing Saddles as provocative as it is riotous.

Screened in association with Glasgow International Comedy Festival and Govanhill Baths Community Trust. Beverages will be available for purchase before the screening. Please remember to wrap up warm!
