Don’t Get Saucy With Me, Bernaise

3 Jul

That Mel Brooks is a comic genius.  Everything he does cracks me up.  The first time I saw “High Anxiety” I was about 9 years old.  And let’s not forget “Spaceballs“.  By far, however, his best movie was “History of the World: Part 1“.  I’ve seen the movie at least a million times and could easily watch it another million times.  I swear it cracks me up every single time.

For the 7 of you that haven’t seen the movie, here’s a little clip of the late Madeline Kahn choosing her escorts for the midnight orgy.

It’s a freaking classic.

    Madeline Kahn is so funny! I love her as Lilly Von Schup (sp?) in Blazing Saddles. So classic.

    You need to add the clip of her singing “I’m Tired” from Blazing Saddles. It is like a single woman’s anthem. It’s so good and stuff.

    She is most excellent. I was very sad to hear that she had passed away. Comic genius, that’s what she was. -CS

    The “Putting on the Ritz” dance in “Young Frankenstein” is one of the biggest comic pay-offs ever. I watched it with my kids this year and never heard them laugh so loud at something that didn’t involve farting or puking.

    Gotta love it when you see kids today enjoying quality entertainment from when we were younger. -CS

    I was walking through Times Square when I saw it flash on one of the news tickers that Madeline Kahn had passed. I made a sad little sound and then said to my companion, “I hated her SO MUCH that it was like flames, flames on the side of my face, breathless, heaving breaths…” (Which isn’t Mel Brooks but is vintage Madeline Kahn.) Turned out my friend had never seen Clue. Remedied that sitch. The next night I was in a bar w/another friend and said, “Oh, did you hear that Madeline Kahn died?” She made a sad little sound and then said, “I hated her SO MUCH…”

    For those of you who don’t know, she was also an accomplished stage actress. I believe she won a Tony Award circa 1979 for On the Twentieth Century, a musical version of the old movie. She well may have been nominated/won for other things, too. Tragic that she went so young.

    It really is sad that she passed away at such a young age. She was so talented. I always enjoyed watching her perform. -CS
