Remembering Harvey Korman

aka Hedy Hedley Lamarr

Harvey Korman always made me laugh. It didn't matter if I was watching him on the Carol Burnett show or in Mel Brooks movie - Harvey was funny. On the Carol Burnett show he'd make me laugh out loud whenever he would team up with Tim Conway. I always loved the way Tim would make Harvey break out of character and burst out laughing. On the big screen Harvey would play the best villain. Something about Harvey's sneer would always bring a smile to my face.

So when I learned that Harvey had passed away at the at of 81 I decided I would pay tribute to this great straight man and second banana by passing along the entire Blazing Saddles movie in 19 mp3 files. Anyone familiar with the movie will recognize the chapters below. Listen from your desktop or download the movie as a zip file then to my favorite Harvey Korman moment - his famous "Mugs, Pugs, and Thugs" speech.

01 - Opening Credits
02 - Dock That Chink A Days Pay
03 - Land...See Snatch
04 - Howard Johnson is Right!

Dear Paul,
I loved your little tribute to Harvey Korman, and I truly loved the zip file
which I immediately downloaded for my own crazy purposes. Remember when you
and I stood in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater way, way back in the 1998,
and I stood in Douglas Fairbanks' footprints and uttered the memorable line,
"how did he do such great stunts with such little feet?" Ah, Harvey, we
knew you well.
Dancing around like a Kansas City faggot,
