Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder in "Blazing Saddles"

Way Out Westerns! concludes at Trailers from Hell, with John Landis introducing Mel Brooks' classic sagebrush satire "Blazing Saddles," about a black sheriff (played by Cleavon Little) in a racist western town. 

Wacky anachronisms abound. "Blazing Saddles" is an unstructured, fourth wall-breaking romp that recalls Hellzapoppin’  and stands proudly as the first major studio film to break the currently inexplicable embargo against fart jokes. Shot under the title Black Bart, it spawned an unsold tv pilot of that name in 1975.
