Did *it* see *you*?
Hm. The movie producer in Cold Comfort Farm was Mr. Earl P. Neck, but I'm cheating; I have a copy of the book. Old favorite.
And I don't know what it says on the side of Mongo's ox, but I just watched Blazing Saddles for the first time, and omg the slash. I mean, it's everywhere. To the point where the moviemakers have noticed it themselves. Admittedly Gene Wilder has the Midas Touch with slashiness, but even so? He and the Sheriff. Are so married. OMG.

Re: Did *it* see *you*?
Heh! I saw all those Gene Wilder movies when I was too young to think of slash, but you have a point. They subtly played up the "strangely close" buddy relationships of Western movies, in 'Blazing Saddles.' After all, Sheriff Bart obviously wasn't going to stay with Lily von Schtupp. ;) Then again, the boys were nowhere near as slashy as the totally flagrant Hollywood guys they stumble upon, rehearsing their dance number "The French Mistake." Hee.
