Working through (and ruling out) more of the 1972 films:

Fritz the Cat: No - animated, central male character is not human.

The Heartbreak Kid: There is no ambiguity about whether the main male character is involved in law enforcement. There is no reason to assume the characters would not celebrate halloween.

Now You See Him, Now You Don't: Part of a series.

On the Buses: Part of a series.

Pink Flamingos: Part of a series.

Play It Again, Sam: There is no ambiguity about whether the main male character is involved in law enforcement. There is no reason to assume the characters would not celebrate halloween.

Pulp: There is no ambiguity about whether the main male character is involved in law enforcement. There is no reason to assume the characters would not celebrate halloween.

Snowball Express: There is no ambiguity about whether the main male character is involved in law enforcement. There is no reason to assume the characters would not celebrate halloween.

This is a good guess.

More 1972 just in case Damo's guess isn't it:

The Thing with Two Heads: There are references to Halloween in this movie.

Up the Chastity Belt: Part of a series.

Up the Front: Part of the same series as the one above.

What's Up, Doc?: Possible: This film includes a character called Mr Jones who is implied to be an FBI agent. But this would be a very obscure character to pick for this game.

Where Does it Hurt?: Contemporary setting so no reason the characters wouldn't celebrate halloween.

With Children at the Seaside: Extremely obscure unless you're a fan of Bulgarian cinema.

Yes!!!

I couldn't remember whether Jim the Waco Kid was ever deputized by Sheriff Bart. He ends up basically playing the part of Sheriff Bart's deputy.

I've had the theme song of Blazing Saddles stuck in my head this whole time, ha ha.

I wonder what esoteric community we need to nominate so that it can pass the dart test...

Oh, this character is totally gonna pass that if like, it's just anyone over the age of 30 I would say? This movie is very well known, and I think it was a great choice for a tricky one that would be hard to guess despite being a big character

You need to watch the movie! It has definitely stood the test of time.

And yes, this is one of Gene Wilder's most famous roles. It's not as famous as his Willy Wonka role, which was referenced in this thread, but it's up there.

No charity hints at the finish line, eh? Guess we're going to have to crack this the hard way.
I think that you all can crack this the hard way! I'd give a hint if you all were still way off.
My hint, if you weren't close, would have been that this was my favorite childhood movie, but that it was way too inappropriate for it to have been my favorite childhood movie, ha ha
