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.

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
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.
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.

Not bad....Funny to see Kirk Douglas in such a role, and fun to see Arnold in what must have been one of his first movies.Published 12 months ago by P.E.B.
VERY VERY SILLY, much like a cartoon, but that is what we bought it for. No the best acting from any of the characters, but it was a funny movie to watch.Published on July 10 2014 by C. D. Mahar
