Blazing Saddles is my favorite comedy ever... and I missed it.

I don't remember Klansmen and Nazis in Blazing Saddles. Sure, there were racists galore and people who displayed those tendencies, but no actual Klansmen and Nazis. Or has it been too long since I've seen the movie?

Obviously, that's the only one I missed. P.S. No Klansmen or Nazis.

Oh, come on. A plot point was the heroes disguised under Klan sheets. And Nazis were part of the giant posse called up to defeat them.

One of two I missed - personally thought there could have been a much better clue, this clue missed the whole point of the film. Perhaps something like "Extremely racially-prejudiced town unknowingly hires African-American sheriff" or even simply describe the classic scene, "Large oaf punches out his horse for parking in a red zone."

There is no Mel Brooks film ever which doesn't contain Nazis

Until my answer turned out to be correct, I was "primed" to enter comment that the clue "also" fit "blazing Saddles"!

Yeah, remember when the sheriff had to draw the Klansmen's attention by leaning out and shouting, "Hey, where the white women at?"

It's "say you're sorry", not "say your sorry".

Can't believe I missed Superman. I was thinking it must have been one of the Bond films I hadn't seen and was typing every one I could think of.

Is it the same story? I thought Amityville was about a kid who heard voices telling him to kill his family, not an indian burial ground

Only missed Blazing Saddles. The clue does not make one think comedy.

Cant remember there being an indian burial ground in Amityville Horror (some demon in the basement whispering to do things)
