Crazy 4 Cult 5 / "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly."

"An army of the worst dregs ever to soil the face of the west." -Hedley LaMarr

"I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperadoes, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, half-wits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswagglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass kickers, shit kickers - and Methodists."

This latest piece for Gallery 1988's, 5th annual Crazy 4 Cult was inspired by the bad guy line up, in Blazing Saddles. You can check out the scene here if you like. Lots of cool coverage for the show up on their blog too. If you're in L.A. this Friday, check out the opening. Looks like it'll be another big blow out!

Thanks Meg! Now, if they could only start making more unpolitically movies, the world would be a better place.

This is unbelievable. Such a great idea and execution. And one of my all time top movies, to boot.

@DRP -Thanks, dude. The hardest part was trying to pick which characters to throw in. Wish I had the time to do a longer line-up. I kept flashing back to Michael Golden's Marvel line-up illo while I was doing it.

Augdog, might I recommend "Tropic Thunder" and/or "Black Dynamite" as some great choices for brilliant, politically-incorrect comedies as art inspiration? ;)

Those are great flics Meg. Politically-incorrect movie night might be in order.
