    Has this edition been PC'd down or did Mel leave the original footage (and
    language) intact?

    I've got it and didn't notice any changes. If you PC edited Blazing Saddles
    there'd only be about five minutes left!

    This is the original theatrical cut of Blazing Saddles, unedited, in all of
    its hilarious and offensive glory...I don't think Mel Brooks would have had
    it any other way. : )

    As an added bonus, additional scenes that were included only on the
    broadcast TV version are available as extras.

    The TV edit of Blazing saddles is pretty funny. The language substitutions
    and edits are hilarious unto themselves.

    The opening sequense with all the fart noises cut out is priceless!

    I love some of the scenes in the TV version, particularly "The Gov's" visit
    to the fake Rock Ridge ("Sir, these people are dummies!" "Of course they
    are! How do you think I got elected?!")

  6. I have no idea, but they ran the film last weekend at 11:45pm on the CBC
    here in Canada. The campfire scene was there, and there were a number
    of things where I kept thinking "I can't believe they are airing that"
    so it would seem to be the original version. I saw it when it first
    came out, but it's been a long time, and I'm not sure I've seen it
    in a theatre since.

    The CBC is running films instead of hockey on Saturday nights, and
    they've got one of the hockey announcers talking between films. He
    made a comment about how it wouldn't air in the US, in effect saying
    that only in Canada would the original be aired on network tv.

    But does he mention that many books and magazines published in the US
    are stopped at the Canadian border? :)
