Plot Summary

The Ultimate Western Spoof. A town where everyone seems to be named Johnson is in the way of the railroad. In order to grab their land, Hedley Lemar (Harvey Korman), a politically connected nasty person, sends in his henchmen to make the town unlivable. After the sheriff is killed, the town demands a new sheriff from the Governor (Mel Brooks). Hedley convinces him to send the town the first Black sheriff (Cleavon Little) in the west. Bart is a sophisticated urbanite who will have some difficulty winning over the townspeople. Written by John Vogel

Trivia (at around 45 mins) Cleavon Little was not warned about the "you know... morons" line. His reaction was real. See more »
Goofs (at around 56 mins) During Lili Von Shtupp's musical performance, the soldier that provides a chair for her to rest in, throws his rifle down on the ground when explaining how "tired" she is. The rifle hits the stage floor and slides, bursting the stage light in front of him. The sound of the light exploding can be heard through the singing and music. See more »
