Blazing Saddles episode 74: For my next impression, Jesse Owens

With Bart having been discovered masquerading as a Klansman, he decides it’s time to leave. He announces his next impression, Jesse Owens! Jim and Bart flee in rapid fashion. Hedley demands his men catch them while Taggart yells to head them off at the pass. We then spend some time discussing scenes that were shot and inserted in the television release. Additionally, there was discussion over content from the script that was never shot. We also discussed the historical significance of Jesse Owens and his performance at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. The anachronistic reference might be the most significant one used in the entire film. The episode ends with Jim and Bart sneaking into the railroad camp to speak with Charlie. They tell him to gather the men and supplies and meet three miles due east of Rock Ridge at midnight.
