Blazing Saddles episode 87: Get your pies for the great pie fight
Release Date: 06/25/2019
The episode opens with the fight continuing to spill into the Warner Brothers commissary. The fight takes on a frenetic pace. The film speeds up to go along with it. We point out the actor playing Hitler is at the very back, standing on the counter alternating his heils. A tour group gets appropriately pie-struck on their tour. Then Taggart gets smashed by Mongo and flies across the counter to the register. Suddenly, the men's room opens and Hedley mouths a naughty word before retreating back inside. A moment later he re-emerges, the remnants of a pie dripping from his face. He begins to make his way out of the commissary. We end the minute with the rioters spilling out onto the streets of Burbank.
