Summary
Blazing saddles: A railroad needs to be built, but the land necessary is already owned. Needing to drive out the town folk, you appoint a new sheriff you figure will last about 24 hours. High anxiety: Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Richard Thorndyke is a nut-job with a paralyzing fear of heights. He had just become head of the Psycho-Neurotic Institute for the Very Very Nervous. History of the world part 1: Find out what really happened throughout time. Robin Hood, men in tights: In days of olde, when men were men, men wore tights. And none wore tights mightier - or tighter - than Robin Hood. Silent movie: As the ruthless conglomerate Engulf and Devour targets a floundering movie studio, has-been director Mel Funn convinces the paranoid studio chief to make a star-studded silent picture. The twelve chairs: The tale of a former aristocrat who is now a Russian clerk under the new Soviet regime. To be or not to be: Frederick Bronski is a great Polish actor, his wife is an actress, with whom he fights a tug-of-war battle for center stage. Young Frankenstein: Summoned by a will to his late grandfathers castle in Transylvania, young Dr. Frankenstein soon discovers the scientists step-by-step manual explaining how to bring a corpse to life
