Blazing saddles by Mel Brooks( visu )
88 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 3,459 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

Gilda Radner, the popular star of "Saturday Night Live", died of ovarian cancer on May 20, 1989. When "Fighting Ovarian Cancer - Doctors Don't Know Who's at Risk, or Why" appeared in the Washington Post ten days later, the media had finally let ovarian cancer out of the closet. It could strike any woman, including a famous comedienne who meant so much to so many. Following the publication in the New York Times of medical writer Larry Altman's article "Research Links Diet and Infertility Factors to Ovarian Cancer," Gilda's husband, Gene Wilder, wrote to the author to ask some pointed questions. Altman urged him to contact Dr. M. Steven Piver at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York. Wilder and Piver met over the phone and immediately recognized their shared common desire. From that time, they have worked together to communicate to the general public what is now known about ovarian cancer. When Dr. Piver decided to write Gilda's Disease, he asked Wilder to help him by sharing what he had learned during Gilda's struggle so that others might benefit from their ordeal
