Definitely one of the funniest films of all time, y'all!

Nothing about Paris OR the baby elephant? I want my Sloggers back.

I saw The Producers at its second performance evah. I have the great city of Chicago to thank for that. I've rarely laughed harder. (God, Chicago nostalgia and showtunes. I guess I'm the Dan impersonator for freaky Friday or whatever the hell it's called.)

What? You don't like Young Frankenstein?

I sent a post about Paris a little while ago, but considering all us Freaksters aren't in the same room, it is possible that Amy is deciding which Paris submission to post. I figured since everyone was piling on Charles it would be safe for me to send in a post (and an update).

I thought about slogging about Hansa, but I couldn't think of a good headline.

Oh yeah, I forgot there was a go-between. Good, now I can go back to blaming The Stranger staff.

Oh HELL YES! Blazing Saddles the musical would be hilarious. Come on Mel!

Faux News has the video of Paris' limo taking her skinny butt back to jail.

Christopher Frizelle emailed me and said there was already enough about Paris today. They are just updating the link to Kerri's earlier post (scroll down three quarters of the way down your screen).

It's too bad, because the picture of Paris bawling in the back of the police car was priceless. I'm sure the first 30 minutes of the Scarborough report will be devoted to it. Of course now that the Chemistry Department's graduation is about to start, I'll be luck if I get to post again today.

So the guest sloggers have blown their Paris wad, so to speak.

Posted by ljg | June 8, 2007 1:21 PM

That wad blows itself, over and over and over again.

i'm there with Shaniqua Jackson. this movie is in top 20. but if i was to show five films that are for me closest to the essence of the american experience at the end of the 20th century, it would be: blazing saddles, zelig, roger and me, do the right thing, and primary colors.

Posted by charles mudede | June 8, 2007 2:55 PM

ahhh. one of the best ever. i lost my V while this and Young Frankenstein played. Thank you Mel Brooks.

I don't know if Blazing Saddles could make the transition, if only because the use of "nigger" might not fly as well if spoken by real people on stage in our uptight 21st-century as opposed to seeing it on a screen. Hell, that movie couldn't even get MADE in this day and age, which is sad once you think about it. Definitely a classic.

I can't wait for "Silent Movie: The Musical." Mel Brooks fans get it.

Posted by elswinger | June 8, 2007 3:13 PM

It would just turn out like "Edward Scissorhands: The Musical", except the Marcel Marceau character would get all the good songs.

Just wanted to say, I'm working on YF and have already seen the knockers, and yes, they are quite nice.

Oh hells no. I missed the Producers BOTH in Chitown and on opening week in NYC (before they instituted the ahem 'innovative' ticketing prices). I stumbled into a closing-week night in LA with Jason Alexander and Martin Short and even though I knew it was going to be funny it was, well, hella funny. When I heard YF was workshopping here I was practically calling gambling debts to see it here earlyish.

That said: can a Blazing Saddles musical really be that far off? I suppose the real challenge in the Brooks films of this time to bring to the stage would be Silent Movie.

I'm coming in for the day just to see this.
