Editorial Reviews

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

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.

Hes dressed in black from boots to hat and and his twirling double iron . His name is "Cactus Jack" slater and hes THE VILLAIN . Kirk Douglas (1916- ) stars as the neer-do-well highwayman in this screwball gunslinger comedy co-starring Arnold Schwartznegger (1947 - )as handsome stranger and swedish actress Ann-Margret (Ann-Margret Olsson 1941 - ) as a lusty Miss Charming Jones . Charming father Parody ( Strother Martin 1919-1980) has sent her on a risky overland errand , providing crooked banker Avery Simpson ( Jack Elam 1918-2003) with the perfect chance to double-cross Parody out of a silver fortune and when Simpson offers to buy Cactus Jack out out of the Snakes End Jail if hi hell do the dirty work , Cactus Jack schemes to double-cross the double-crosser . But his plans are foiled when Arnold Schwarzenegger weigh in as Handsome stranger . He owes Parody Jones his life , and the payback is pure pistol-poppimg laughter as the blue-eyed do-gooder does his duty : Protecting the loot and the lady with a white-hatted paladins good luck . Ride along with a horse named Whisky and an allstar cast featuring Paul Lynde (1926-1982) as THE VILLAIN plots to outsmart handsome with slapstick determination . A raucous western spoof that proves you cant judge a cowboy by the color of his hat . High Quality Transfer . Recommended

Format: DVD
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.

I have watched this movie many times and always see something new to giggle at. There are some very subtle humorous scenes in it as well as many overtly humurous. This is one movie I can definitely watch over and over, which is rare for me. There are very few movies I will gladly watch repeatedly. The best character in the whole movie is Kirk Douglas' horse, Whiskey.

I saw this movie as a child and loved it. Now when I watch it, I still feel like a kid and can't help laughing and rolling my eyes at the same corny lines (and the horse, of course). I see the cheeziness of it, but it sure hits the spot when I have a case of the 'sillies'. It may not be the best script, stunts, editing or whatever, but really... who cares?

This is, in my opinion, the finest comedy Western ever produced. With Kirk Douglas as "Cactus Jack Slade," (alias Wiley Coyote) and Arnold Schwartzeneggar as--well--NOT the road-runner, but rather a puritannical "Handsome Stranger," and the beautiful Ann Margaret as the lusty "Charming Jones," along with a great supporting cast, it is without a doubt the funniest spoof of a Western action movey I've ever seen...

This is one of my most favorite movies. It actually is a family favorite. We made our original "beta" copy when it 1st appeared on cable in the early "70's-. Arnold, Mel Tillis- Ann Margaret, Ruth Buzzy-- Kirk Douglas - (he was amazing) Paul Lynn- Who am I missing-- Oh yeah the horse Whiskey - and road runner- This was hilarious in the 70's and still is. - As we showed it to all of our friends in the 70's-- we present it to all of our friends now- every one must see "The Villain" over and over and over.- cant get enough of it.
