Mel Brooks' spoof of the Western was a tremendous hit, establishing the template for his 1970s and '80s genre satires. Coveting land around the frontier town of Rock Ridge, nefarious railroad magnate Hedley Lamarr (Harvey Korman) recruits a gang to terrorize the town and uses his influence to stick Rock Ridge with rookie sheriff Bart (Cleavon Little), the town's first black resident. Despite long odds, the wily new sheriff flips the script with help from newly deputized drunk "The Waco Kid" (Gene Wilder) and Dietrich-esque saloon singer Lili Von Shtupp (Oscar®-nominated Madeline Kahn). "A wed wose. How womantic." DIR/SCR Mel Brooks; SCR Norman Steinberg, Andrew Bergman, Richard Pryor, Alan Uger; PROD Michael Hertzberg. U.S., 1974, color, 93 min. RATED R
