Most widely held works by Slim Pickens
Blazing saddles by Mel Brooks( Visual )

41 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,463 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
