A lone sheriff must protect an imperiled town. Sound familiar? Director Mel Brooks ("Young Frankenstein," "Robin Hood: Men in Tights") lampoons the traditional Hollywood Western in grand fashion, leaving no sacred cow unbranded in this hilarious classic comedy. Cleavon Little ("Greased Lightning," "Fletch Lives") stars as the new sheriff in town, and Gene Wilder ("Willy Wonka," "Young Frankenstein") is his partner. Co-writers Andrew Bergman ("Honeymoon in Vegas," "The In-Laws") and Richard Pryor provide an unending succession of gags from an all-star cast in this top box-office hit. Recently selected by the prestigious American Film Institute as one of the 400 greatest American films of all time.
