Blazing Saddles on and Easter egg in hand...

Ah, the joys of a Bank Holiday! I have been saving Blazing Saddles for a rainy night such as this one where rain runs down my window and the wind makes the trees in the garden dance in a waltz. But shall I watch A Man for all Seasons instead? My choice in movies is very bathetic; from the sublime drama of Paul Scofield's finest hour in the role of St Thomas More ("I was the King's good servant, but the Lord's first") to the comic-tastic Gene Wilder slumping against a prison wall murmuring, "my name is Jim, but most people call me...Jim." Blazing Saddles came number 6 among the American Film Institute's Top-100 Comedies. A Man for All Seasons won 6 Oscars, and don't have to be religious or 'a Roman' to enjoy it, as the trailer will attest.

I still have a few shards of Easter egg left...  A movie night is like the intermission in 'real life'.
