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

48 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,504 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

Tom Horn by William Wiard( Visual )

2 editions published between 1980 and 2005 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tom Horn is a very good western along the lines of The Wild Bunch about the changing times in the west and how certain people are adjusting to it. Based on a true story, the movie is about fronteirsman and marksman Tom Horn. Famous for several reasons that are introduced early in the movie, Horn begins the movie drifting along in 1903 Wyoming. Known for his ability with a rifle, Horn is hired by an association of ranchers to drive out rustlers in whatever way necessary. Soon, he begins to call too much attention to himself causing the ranchers to take action. This movie is very good for several reasons. It seems very realistic with beautiful scenery, good characters(good and bad), and a well-told story.? Steve McQueen gives a very believable performance as frontier hero, Tom Horn. His role as a man caught in a changing world who is not willing to change along with it is very well done. Richard Farnsworth plays rancher John Coble, one of the only men to remain loyal to Horn even when he is in trouble. Linda Evans gives a good, if somewhat short, performance as Gwendolene, a schoolteacher who Tom falls in love with. Slim Pickens is excellent as the sheriff who knows Tom from the past, but we never learn in what way
