Synopsis

This hilarious comedy western is set in a small town called Ridge Rock, which a villainous developer wants to destroy to make way for a railway. He thinks that if he appoints an African-American sheriff, the white townspeople - who are blessed with neither brains or tolerance - will revolt. But the new sheriff Bart and his deputy, the Waco Kid, are more than a match for them. The film is both charming and crude, with non-stop jokes. It also has one of the most over-the-top endings ever filmed and has gone on to become one of the most influential American comedies ever made.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
