I really liked him. His family still owns a reception hall on Plymouth Road in Detroit (Karas House). Blazing Saddles is such a classic movie, and they could never make it now. Too edgy on the racial humor.
My brother went to college with Alex's son. My brother hated his kid, but my brother hates everyone.
He delivered some of the funniest lines in Blazing Saddles. RIP. :apologetic:
Blazing Saddles is a great movie. Mongo was a good character. .
