After the sheriff is killed, the town demands a new sheriff from the Governor, so Hedley convinces him to send the town the first black sheriff in the west.

Where The Producers was my favorite Mel Brooks movie in concept, Blazing Saddles is my favorite Mel Brooks film measured in laughter.
I see many films ripping it off (fart jokes began here) yet I've seen those films first, so what's funny to me here I've already seen.
