The Villain ★½ Cactus Jack 1979 (PG)

An unfunny spoof of “B” westerns that is almost like a live-action “Roadrunner” cartoon. Douglas plays Cactus Jack, a highwayman who keeps trying to kidnap fair damsel Ann-Margret. Hero Schwar-zenegger keeps rescuing her. Lynde is amusing as the uptight Indian chief Nervous Elk. 93m/C VHS, DVD .
