Blazing saddles by Mel Brooks( visu )
25 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in English and held by 2,467 libraries worldwide
Never give a saga an even break! Blazing Saddles is an iconoclastic, not-politically-correct parody; one of the 1970s most successful and popular films. Every clichéd element from every Western ever made is turned upside down and inside out, while retaining all the familiar caricatures--eh, characters--of the genre: a dance-hall girl, a gunslinger, a sheriff, and a town full of pure folk. Mel Brooks redefined film comedy and proved that even sophomoric, scatological humor could be used to ridicule prejudice, injustice, and apathy

Next, the truth is finally told about the Spanish Inquisition in a splashy production number featuring song-and-dance monks and swimming nuns ...
