Blazing Saddles

The Ultimate Western Spoof. A town where everyone seems to be named Johnson is in the way of the railroad. In order to grab their land, Hedley Lemar (<a href="/name/nm0466327?ref_=tt_stry_pl">Harvey Korman</a>(R.I.P.)), a politically connected nasty person, sends in his henchmen to make the town unlivable. After the sheriff is killed, the town demands a new sheriff from the Governor (<a href="/name/nm0000316?ref_=tt_stry_pl">Mel Brooks</a>). Hedley convinces him to send the town the first Black sheriff (<a href="/name/nm0001476?ref_=tt_stry_pl">Cleavon Little</a>(R.I.P.)) in the west. Bart is a sophisticated urbanite who will have some difficulty winning over the townspeople.
