* MadeOfIron: Cactus Jack survives cartoonish levels of violence and failure at different points in the movie. The guy's Kirk Douglas playing WileECoyote! Speaking of which, Mr. Douglas qualifies as a real-life example, as he was in his sixties at the time of filming and did at least some of his own stunts.

It stars Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger as Handsome Stranger (he was named after his father), who is escorting Charming Jones (Creator/AnnMargret) so that she can claim money left by her father, Parody Jones (Creator/StrotherMartin). Avery Simpson (Creator/JackElam), the corrupt town boss forced to hand the money over, wants it back and so hires/conscripts an inept outlaw named Cactus Jack Slade (Creator/KirkDouglas) and Slade's [[SapientSteed super-genius horse]] Whiskey into stealing it back. What [[HilarityEnsues then unfolds]] is literally a [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadrunner live-action Roadrunner cartoon.]]
