Blazing Saddles: Count Basie

Return to search



This iconic Blazing Saddles (1974) scene features Cleavon Little as Bart happening upon the Count Basie Orchestra while riding his house in the middle of the Wild West. To top it all off, they're playing "April in Paris!" This totally random scene contributes to the anachronistic quality that makes the Blazing Saddles so memorable.
