His genius is unparalelled,  his films.. hysterical.... He is one of the single greatest spoof artists ever. I just wanna spark the flame and ask... which one tickled your fancy the most...

I really loved The History Of The World Part I. If I had to pick a favorite that would be it. Honestly I loved Blazing Saddles but... meh... I mean... It's EVERYONES favorite and I have to admit that the bit about the gucci-prada bag in the saloon is quite hilarious but Young Frankenstien was just so much more moving along with The History Of The World Part I.

Blazing Saddles is my favorite movie of his.  I'd say it's my favorite film, period.

Damn, they're all so good! and i haven't watched "Blazing saddles" yet  frown

but between the ones i've seen, it's between spaceballs, silent movie and crazy world history (might have another name in english). Men in thights was good too, but i liked those ones better.

The best movie song was in "Blazing Saddles" but my alltime favorites are Silent Movie and To Be or Not to be.

Blazing Saddles and Spaceballs are my two faves.  In Blazing Saddles, Madeline Kahn was priceless as Lily Von Schtup. Harvey Korman was also great.

Blazing Saddles is fairly amusing but to be honest I don't really find his films all that funny.

"Spaceballs" or "Robin Hood: Men In Tights"

Blinkin: This never would have happened if your father was alive.
Robin Hood: He's dead?
Blinkin: Yes.
Robin Hood: And my mother?
Blinkin: She died of pneumonia while -- oh, you were away!
Robin Hood: My three brothers?
Blinkin: Died of the plague.
Robin Hood: My dog Pogo?
Blinkin: Run over by a carriage.
Robin Hood: My goldfish Goldie?
Blinkin: Eaten by the cat.
Robin Hood: My cat?
Blinkin: Choked on the goldfish. Oh, it's good to be home, ain't it, Master Robin?

Dark Helmet: What's all that churning and bubbling? You call that a radar?
Coronel Sandurz: No sir. We call that Mr. Coffee! Coffee, sir?
Dark Helmet: Yes! I always have coffee when I watch radar you know that?
Coronel Sandurz: Of course I do sir.
Dark Helmet: Everybody knows that?
Spaceballs: [Grabbing their crotches] OF COURSE WE DO SIR!

They're all great.  It's hard to pick a favorite.  If I had to pick just one, I guess I'd say Men in Tights, because it makes fun of that Kevin Costner movie.

Probably because polls only allow ten choices, and Don didn't want people asking "Why didn't you list [insert name of movie] as a choice?"

Kids, how can we be forgetting "The Producers"? One of Brooks' earliest, and his best.

I mean come on, who doesn't love "Springtime for Hitler"? Stupid people, that's who. You don't wanna be stupid, do you?

Anyways, my list goes:

1. The Producers
2. Young Frankenstein
3. Blazing Saddles
4. Spaceballs

1. Blazing Saddles.  When Cleavon Little is about to be hanged by the townsfolk, and he pulls his gun on himself, it's one of the funniest moments in the movie.
CL: Hold it! No one move, or I'll blow this N--'s head clean off! I mean it!
TF: Look out, he looks desperate enough to do it.
CL: (other voice) H'ep me, please h'ep me
TF2: Can't someone help that poor man?
CL backs down the stairs, into the office.

One of the funnier bits in a funny movie

Then Young Frankenstein, the The Producers, and  Spaceballs in that order.

I personally like it when Cleavon Little is approaching the town, and Gabby Johnson is on the church roof when the bell is chiming.

even though I only own Spaceballs, I would say that Blazing Saddles is my favourite. A quality film all round  big grin.
The others I haven't seen in a while, if at all. I'll get round to finding them one day, if I don't see them on the TV.

It's fun to try to imagine the reaction of the PC crowd to Blazing Saddles if it were a new film being released today.

If you don't tell me what "tf" stands for, I'm going to assume you mean "townsfolk" and think you missed the entire point of that scene.

Brooks' films, from best to worst:

1. The Producers
2. Blazing Saddles
3. Young Frankenstein
4. Spaceballs
5. High Anxiety
6. Silent Movie
7. Robin Hood: Men In Tights
8. Life Stinks
9. History of the World: Part 1
10. The Twelve Chairs
11. Dracula: Dead and Loving It

EDIT: I didn't include "To Be Or Not To Be" because he didn't write or direct it, he just starred in in.  If you must have it in there, I'd put it between History of the World and 12 Chairs.

Hands down it has to be Blazing Saddles, what he got away with in that film can not be duplicated to this day. Young Frankenstein is also good as is Spaceballs.
