Blazing Saddles

This spoof of westerns is insanely funny from that wonderful comedian, Mel Brooks; his third directoral effort. Cleavon Little stars as Americas first black sheriff who reigns over a town that's about to be forcefully seized by the railroad company. Gunfire can't keep these corporate elephants out of this town, so the new sheriff must come up with something that will. Hilarious material makes this a great one to watch, but it can be offensive because it makes great use of the N word. A must see for fans of crazy comedy!
