In this zany send up of every Western in Hollywood history, a black sheriff named Bart (Cleavon Little) dares to wear the badge in Rock Ridge, a small town with big prejudices. With the help of a legendary gunslinger going by the name ‘The Waco Kid’ (Gene Wilder), Bart plans to clean up the West. But it turns out the sheriff’s been appointed by a corrupt Attorney General (Harvey Korman), who’s using the whole enterprise to help him turn a dirty profit on a railroad deal. The resulting showdown is so big, so epic, that one movie studio can’t contain it!
