Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): When Sheriff Bart is making his ride to Rock Ridge and he encounters Count Basie, Basie's band are not playing the music heard on the audio track. This is easily recognized if you watch the band's drummer, who isn't even playing his drum kit, let alone the actual drum patterns heard in the music.
  • Gene Wilder was originally offered the role of Hedley Lamarr but he didn't feel right for it and told Mel Brooks that he wanted The Waco Kid instead. However, Brooks wanted someone older for The Waco Kid, someone like Dan Dailey. Dailey was originally considered for the role of the Waco Kid but poor health and declining eyesight forced him to decline.
  • CAMEO(Gilda Radner): appears in a scene in the church. She would later become the wife of Gene Wilder (The Waco Kid).
  • Supposedly, this movie officially marks the first time the sound of farting has ever been used in a film (at least according to the film makers in the DVD Documentary). According to Mel Brooks, they came up with the idea after watching numerous old westerns where cowboys only consume black coffee and plates of beans, thus concluding that such a food combination would inevitably lead to farting.
