11. ‘Blazing Saddles’ (1974)
Memorable quote: “Men, you are about to embark on a great crusade to stamp out runaway decency in the west. Now you men will only be risking your lives, whilst I will be risking an almost certain Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor.”
Laugh factor: Mel Brooks strikes again, this time sending up westerns with this classic about a black sheriff coming to town. Brooks also appears in numerous roles, including an Indian chief who speaks Yiddish.
