Does every American man love Blazing Saddles?

Hollywood's "West" is mythology. The reality was a hard, tedious existence. Trying to carve a nation, a life, out of wilderness. I believe The Searchers came closest to the reality but even then Hollywood could not resist some romanticism. Blazing Saddles is a takeoff of that mythology. And as good as any of the "serious" ones.

And if the West had women who looked like Madeline Kahn, it would have been a lot wilder. ^_^

My guys love Blazing Saddles but it seems you're a Searchers fan. I have a cousin who loved the Searchers so much he named his kids Ethan and Martin. If he'd had a girl, I'm sure he would have named her Debbie.
