Some claim this is Brooks’ best film. You can judge for yourselves. Rock Ridge is your typical sleepy town with not much going on.

Unfortunately for the slimy politician, Hedley Lamarr, (Harvey Korman – from television’s The Carol Burnett Show) who hopes to make money off of it, the townspeople of Rock Ridge already own their land. A rough and tough gang is sent in to scare the townspeople and a sheriff (Cleavon Little – Fletch Lives, Once Bitten) is hired who is thought will last a day. The Old West will never be the same now that Mel Brooks has made a film about it.
