Film: The Villain

The Villain, AKA Cactus Jack, is a 1979 comedy parodying western films in general. It stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as Handsome Stranger (that's literally his name), who is escorting Charming Jones (played by Ann Margret) so that she can claim money left by her father, Parody Jones. Avery Simpson (Jack Elam), the corrupt town boss forced to hand the money over, wants it back and so hires/conscripts an inept outlaw named Cactus Jack Slade (Kirk Douglas) into stealing it back. What then unfolds is literally a live-action Roadrunner cartoon.

No relation whatsoever to the wrestler Mick Foley.
