Product Description

Product Description

He's dressed in black from boots to hat and he's twirling double iron. His name is "Cactus Jack" Slater and he's THE VILLAIN. Kirk Douglas stars as the ne'er-do-well highwayman in this screwball gunslinger comedy co-starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as Handsome Stranger and Ann-Margret as the lusty Miss Charming Jones. Charming's father, Parody, has sent her on a risky overland errand, providing crooked banker Avery Simpson with the perfect chance to double-cross Parody out of a silver fortune. And when Simpson offers to buy Cactus Jack out of the Snakes End Jail if he'll do the dirty work, Cactus Jack schemes to double-cross the double-crosser. But his plans are foiled when Arnold Schwarzenegger weighs in as Handsome Stranger. He owes Parody Jones his life, and the payback is pure pistol-popping laughter as the blue-eyed do-gooder does his duty: protecting the loot and the lady with a white-hatted paladin's good luck. Ride along with a horse named Whiskey and an all-star cast featuring P

This curiosity from the mid-1970s is breathtaking in its dreadfulness. Directed by Hal Needham, this was an attempt at creating a Roadrunner cartoon with live actors--except that instead of a live actor they got Arnold Schwarzenegger, before Hollywood smoothed his rough edges (and his Austrian accent). He plays the invulnerable sheriff who rides blithely through life, unaware that the evil Kirk Douglas wants to kill him and kidnap his squeeze, Ann-Margret. The stunts are cartoony without being funny and Schwarzenegger shows exactly why he was known as "the Austrian Oak." Douglas works extra hard but effort alone isn't enough to elevate this script. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Here are major stars doing Hal Needham comedy, Kirk Douglas (!!) is the totally useless bad guy ( think whyly coyotye ) ,
good grief , Arnold Sw ( Cal Gov ) is " Handsome Stranger " No really , that's his name. Ann Margret plays the
female cleavage ( gowns by Bob Mack ) . Total burlesque!~!!! Stunts aplenty!!! Westerns played for laughs -
not quite " Blazing Saddles " but close, and well worth a look. !!!!! Rating 5 !'s

The film actually has a good story as Miss Charming Jones (Ann-Margret) in pretty good shape) is sent to the bank to get money for here fathered to keep his half of the mine operating. Prickly oops Cactus Jack is hired to retrieve the movie before it can be delivered; however jack has plans of his own. Cactus is supported by his trusty steed, Whisky; Whisky has his own since of humor. Protecting Miss Charming is Handsome Stranger (Arnold Schwarzenegger) who is sort of a Boy Scout character. He even helps Damsel in Distress (Ruth Buzzi) to cross the street.

This movie is packed with every know character actor of the time and Mel Tillis. See how many you recognize.

There are lots on one line jokes and jokes older than the hills. Also see how many Road Runner skits you can find. I was disappointed to find that Cactus Jack did not get his equipment form Acme. My favorite part right after the scene where Ann-Margret leans over and says hold these, is the one from chapter six the fake tunnel in the rock; you could see that coming a mile away. They did it anyway. No sense of shame.

Surprisingly entertaining, with Douglas stealing the show. Schwarzenegger had a ways to go in becoming an actor, and being a goody two-shoes was clearly not his style (Twins notwithstanding). Humorous homage to Loony Toons and cartoons of long ago.

What fun! I stumbled onto this movie in progress on a program called "Golden Age of Comedy Movies." I paused when I saw Arnold and Ann-Margret in an old western, curious as to what this was. When Ann-Margret leaned out of the train and handed Arnold her bags, nearly falling out of her low-cut dress in the process and saying, "Take hold of these," I knew this wasn't a serious drama I was watching. When Kirk Douglas showed up, I was hooked. It's impossible not to make comparisons with The Roadrunner cartoons as Kirk Douglas performs impossible leaps and survives intact after being crushed by a giant boulder and hit by a train. His trusty sidekick, Whiskey the horse, is a pure delight. It's odd to see Arnold in cowboy garb. His job is mostly to look studly and his lines mostly consist of, "I really don't know!" delivered with a bewildered look. Definitely a one-of-a-kind movie. Don't watch it if you're expecting great acting and writing, but if you just want to get in on the fun of big name stars acting very silly, you'll love it.

This movie is highly entertaining and just plain fun. It isn't intended to be an epic, like Spartacus or Cleopatra. It's simply fun.
In many ways, this movie is reminiscent of Coyote and Road Runner, but with Kirk Douglas and Arnie Swartzenegger in the lead character roles. It is very camp, and if you enjoy comic camp, this is a really entertaining film. It does not allow itself to fret over such trivialities as political correctness. It just sets out to be loony fun. And for the purpose it seeks to achieve, it does so wonderfully.
If you want good, hearty laughter, you could do far worse than this modest little film. Good clean fun and sappy slapstick all the way. Certainly you will agree, if you see this movie, that the outlaw's horse is much smarter than his master.
The purpose of film is to entertain, and this little sleeper can deliver. This is not a movie for everybody, but those who appreciate camp should enjoy it.

My husband and I watched The Villian the other day out of curiousity and we were pleasantly surprised with how much fun it was. There were plenty of laughs and then it kind of just ended. I love the whole idea of Arnold as Handsome Stranger, Paul Lynde as the Indian chief and Ann Margaret as the super sexy, beautifully dressed, hot to trot young woman. If only Mel Brooks would've had a chance to co-write this movie, it could have been a classic like Blazing Saddles. It just didn't have enough funny stuff, it was short on story and it didn't have an ending. I thought it was still worth watching and a lot of fun.

I first saw this movie over fifteen years ago, when I stumbled acrossed it in my fathers collection. The way he described it was "a real life Road Runner movie." While at first this did not sound terribly good, when I found out that Arnold was in it I figured that it was worth a shot. The first thought is "Arnold in a WESTERN?" As the movie started, I found it an extremely light-hearted romp with Kirk Douglas doing a great (not)so bad guy to the (saccharine sweet)good guy of Arnold. While not a great movie, it is a good movie that anybody of any age can sit down and watch. It would be a great movie for a parent to sit down with their young child and watch. For a light-hearted movie that will cause you to just laugh I must recommend it.
