Blazing saddles by Mel Brooks ( Visual )
8 editions published between 1983 and 2009 in English and held by 2,750 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
