Mel Brooks' uproarious, contagious and outrageous salute to the American Western is the last word in Western parodies. Cleavon Little portrays the railroad worker promoted to sheriff, Gene Wilder plays the Waco Kid, Madeline Kahn is Lily Von Shtumpp and Harvey Korman is Hedley Lamarr. They take you through one hilarious gag after another.
