The Wilder Ride is a podcast where we look to explore and celebrate the films of Gene Wilder, using the ​movies by minutes format. Your hosts are Alan Sanders and Walt Murray, getting Wilder by the minute.

Feb 27, 2019

Alan and Walt wrap up the credits and begin to discuss the camera movement toward the men working on the railroad. We get a good look at the rail line and number of people doing the work. There seems to be a good number of overseers keeping on eye on the work being done. Eventually Lyle shows up and talks about the heat of the day before a Chinese worker passes out. Lyle unceremoniously demands they dock him a day's pay for nappin' on the job. At that moment, we get a story from actor Burton Gilliam about a discussion with Cleavon Little about some of the language his character has to use. Alan and Walt discuss some of their outdoor labor experiences before wrapping up the minute.
