Ok, always loved this one. John Wayne playing Cole Thornton in the movie El Dorado to James Caan playing Mississippi aka. Alan Bodillion Trahearn. Caans character has just fired both barrels of a sawed off pistol sized side by side at a wounded and fleeing character running past. He missed the guy but hit a sign hanging overhead which in turn fell and hit the man and knocked him down for a minute. As he escaped Wayne and Robert Mitchum as J.P. Harrah the sheriff come running up and Wayne asks? "did you get him????" Caan responds: "well yes and no, I hit the sign and the sign hit him!" Wayne responds: "Well just great!" and Caan says: "Well he was limping when he left here...." and Wayne in disgust says: "Oh hell he was limping when he got here......."
"Yeeeee-hah" yelled by "King" Kong (Slim Pickens) as he rode the nuclear device down, waving his cowboy hat while the background music blared Vera Lynn's "We'll Meet Again", from the movie, "Dr. Strangelove, Or How I Stopped Worrying And Learned To Love The Bomb".
Blazing Saddles is a treasure trove of lines but one of my favorites,
"Mongo just a pawn in the game of life." And of course, anything by Slim Pickens.
Which reminds me, Slim Pickens in the original Getaway. Slim is driving this beat up old pickup truck across some small Mexican border crossing. In the back is a bunch of junk, boards, a broken toilet, some iron pipe. The guard asks, "Anything to declare?" Slim says, "Building Supplies". LMAO. It was especially funny to me because I grew up on the Mexican border. Not much has changed. gyrine
