Max Bialystock was once the king of Broadway, but now he only seems to be able produce flops. Things turn around for Max when he's visited by the neurotic accountant Leo Bloom, who proposes a scheme tailor-made for producers who can only make flops: raise far more money than you need, then make sure the show is despised. No one will be interested in it, so you can pocket the surplus. With this in mind, they decide to produce a musical called 'Springtime for Hitler' written by escaped Nazi Franz Liebken. Then they get the insanely flamboyant Roger De Bris to direct and hire the loopy Swedish bombshell Ulla as the lead actress

Blazing saddles by Mel Brooks( Visual )

85 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 3,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Never give a saga an even break! Blazing Saddles is an iconoclastic, not-politically-correct parody; one of the 1970s most successful and popular films. Every clichéd element from every Western ever made is turned upside down and inside out, while retaining all the familiar caricatures--eh, characters--of the genre: a dance-hall girl, a gunslinger, a sheriff, and a town full of pure folk. Mel Brooks redefined film comedy and proved that even sophomoric, scatological humor could be used to ridicule prejudice, injustice, and apathy
