"Blazing Saddles"

The Chinese appears in Mel Brooks' "Blazing Saddles" (Warner Bros., 1974).  Here is the establishing shot by  Joseph Biroc who six years earlier had shot the Chinese in "The Legend of Lylah Clare."

Thanks to Chinese Theatre historian Kurt Wahlner for the photo. See his Grauman's Chinese website for, among other projects, his list of all the films to play the theatre.

The lobby of the Chinese in "Blazing Saddles."  Harvey Korman buys a box of Raisinets. Note the cows.
