10/10.My favorite Mel Brooks movie.The hilarity's off the charts here.Movies like this deserve all the praise it got as it was big at the box office. Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder, Harvey Korman, Madeline, Kahn, Alex Karris, even Mel Brooks himself are all great here.A movie like this wouldn't be made or shown into the uber sensitive age we're living in now.Still I laugh at the pure genius of this movie and the comedic master behind it, Mel Brooks.

Visible crew/equipment: In the beginning when the two black workers are using the handcart to look for quicksand, you can see the cable pulling them in one quick shot.

Question: At the beginning, Lyle refers to the song Camptown races as "The Camptown lady"? Is this simply cause he's stupid, or is there any other reason?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: The opening line of the song refers to the Camptown Ladies and the phrase "Camptown Races" never appears anywhere in the lyrics. If nobody told him otherwise, Lyle may simply have assumed that some variation on "Camptown Ladies" was the actual title.

The actual title of the song was "Gwine to Run All Night, or De Camptown Races," written by American lyricist Stephen Foster and first published in 1850. Over many years on the minstrel show circuit, the title was shortened to "Camptown Races" and was sometimes erroneously called "Camptown Ladies." While the phrase "Camptown Races" doesn't appear in the lyrics, the phrase "Camptown Racetrack" does appear in the second line: "Camptown ladies sing dis song, doo-dah, doo-dah, Camptown Racetrack five miles long, oh-de-doo-dah-day." The song refers to Camptown, Pennsylvania, a real town with a popular horserace in the mid-1800s.
