Who is randolph scott? He is mentioned in the movie blazing saddles.

Randolph Scott (January 23, 1898 – March 2, 1987) was an American film actor whose career spanned from 1928 to 1962.

As a leading man for all but the first three years of his cinematic career, Scott appeared in a variety of genres, including social dramas, crime dramas, comedies, musicals (albeit in non-singing and non-dancing roles), adventure tales, war films, and even a few horror and fantasy films.

His image from his Westerns as an upright, outstanding sheriff or cowboy was so strong that it was paid homage to in Mel Brooks' classic comedy Blazing Saddles (1974).

When the African-American sheriff asks the reluctant townspeople for their help in fighting the bad guys, they unanimously reject him. However, when he says, "You'd do it for Randolph Scott!", a heavenly chorus in the background sings "Randolph Scott!", and the townspeople change their minds. - IMDb.com.
