Blazing Saddles: 40th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray

Posted February 3, 2014 11:35 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the 40th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray release of Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles, which stars Cleavon Little, Harvey Korman, Madeline Kahn, Gene Wilder and Brooks himself. The new Blu-ray release of the classic comedy arrives with new, exclusive special features on May 6th.

Blazing Saddles, one of Warner Bros.' most successful ever, is listed as #6 on the American Film Institute's (AFI) list of the best comedies of all time. First released in 1974, the movie grossed nearly $120 million at the domestic box office and has sold more than 4.6 million Blu-rays and DVDs. The Western film genre spoof is one of Brooks' most commercially successful films, along with Young Frankenstein, also released that same year.

Official Synopsis: Blazing Saddles stars Cleavon Little as an unlikely sheriff in the town of Rock Ridge, Harvey Korman as the villain, Madeline Kahn as a Marlene Dietrich-style chanteuse, Gene Wilder as the wacko Waco Kid and Brooks himself as a dimwitted politico. Once the lunatic film gets started, logic is lost in a blizzard of gags, jokes, quips, puns and outrageous assaults upon good taste or any taste at all. The film was nominated for three Academy Awards: Supporting Actress for Kahn, Best Editing and Best Song.

Tech specs have yet to be detailed. Special features and bonus content includes:
  • NEW - Blaze of Glory: Mel Brooks' Wild, Wild West - Brooks reflects on his own movie-making chutzpah, Blazing Saddles' lasting cultural impact on audiences of all generations, and alongside co-stars Gene Wilder and Madeline Kahn, proves why his film is one of the funniest and most outrageous film ever made.
  • 10 Exclusive Art Cards with funny quotes and images from the film
  • Audio Commentary with Mel Brooks
  • Back in the Saddle: cast reunion documentary
  • Black Bart: 1975 television pilot inspired by the movie
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Theatrical Trailer

I wouldn't say nothing's wrong with the transfer (I saw pics and they look great), but I'm just saying it would be cool if it got a 4K remaster.

I'll keep my existing BD. Even though it has lossy audio. Still has Mel's commentary. Re-realse has new cover art, Art Cards & one new feature: Blaze of Glory."

One of the funniest movies of all time, not sure I need to double dip though.

One of my absolute favorite films!! But I gotta say, WB has been really dropping the ball with their anniversary rereleases . . . . . first 'JFK', 'The Exorcist' and 'All the President's Men', and now 'Blazing Saddles'. They could have at LEAST had the decency to give it a nice digibook like they did with their 'Goodfellas' copout. PASS.

If "Blaze of Glory" is longer than, say, 30 minutes, maybe I'll pick it up on sale, but I'll stick with my Mel Brooks box set until then.

I'm getting a little tired of the constant re-releases from Warner. Plus only one or two new extras is pretty lame to boot.

One of my favorite comedy of all time, but I'm not going to double dip for one extra content and some physical extras. ...well unless I can get it really cheap

Awesome, although I'll miss the old artwork. Besides the Anniversary, I think we may see a new lossless audio track.

Warner Bros has both the largest movie collection in the world and the most mediocre output of catalog blu-ray releases. Do we really need another double dip when countless classics are still just sitting in the vaults?

@noirjunkie "... the most mediocre output of catalog blu-ray releases" ???? Warner's mastering of Blu's is next to Criterion pretty much the best around. Far, Far better than the quality either Universal or Paramount puts out of their catalogue films.

But as for this film, well some art cards and one new doc isn't going to make me double dip. And there's no mention of any upgrade in the PQ/AQ so I wouldn't expect it to be remastered

If "Blaze of Glory" features input from Madeline Kahn, it can't be entirely NEW, because that great lady passed away in 1999.

@vanscottie

I'm not talking about the quality of their individual releases, which I agree are usually stellar. I'm talking about quantity--the number of catalog titles they've actually released on blu-ray. That's where they've fallen woefully short.

If and only if there is a picture or audio upgrade...I will just take the old bluray and snap in the new one while keeping original artwork. Problem solved.

The original poster cannot be beat!

People constantly complain about Warner's old catalog releases. When they actually do release a new anniversary edition, they complain about that too.

Really, if you're a Mel Brooks fan you probably already own one or two copies of this film on Blu-ray. It was one of WB's first released on Blu-ray and was included in the Fox Mel Brooks box set. Do we really need another release????....probably not.

I hope WB don't judge sales on this title against future releases

Is this a new transfer, and was there even anything wrong with the original transfer?

I already own this movie (got the 9-film Mel Brooks Collection for $25) but I haven't had the opportunity to watch it yet.

Bought "Blazing Saddles" twice on DVD and once on blu. As much as I love this movie, I certainly am not buying it again--even if a new and even better transfer. The existing blu looks great and this is not a film that I watch primarily for the visuals. Also, the new artwork sucks.

So ridiculous to release another version when so many other titles that should be released on Blu-ray; EG: The Party Peter Sellers; All the original Pink Panther Films? Around the world in 80 days 1956. The Time Machine 1960. Batman The TV Series. The Avengers The TV series With Emma Peel. And Squillions of titles only available in The US that should be available to the rest of the world?
