I hand't seen this in years and didn't think it would hold up, but it's not only funny, but surprisingly edgy in its treatment of race. I don't know what happened to Cleavon Little, but he's great in a role that was originally meant for Richard Pryor, who is credited on the screenplay. Quite possibly Brooks's best film and the gold standard of comic westerns (suck it Seth MacFarlane). "Where the white women at?"

The producer was quoted that he wanted to "sock racism in the eye" when he made this film. Loved every second.

Damn funny movie, but is it ever politically incorrect. I wonder when they'll make this into a Broadway Musical? Who doesn't recall the campfire scene when they're sitting around a campfire?
