The Villain (1979)


One of world famous stuntman and blockbuster director Hal Needham's lesser known films is 1979s comedy/western The Villain aka Cactus Jack. Known for such widely screened movies as Smokey and the Bandit, Hooper, The Cannonball Run, Megaforce, Stroker Ace, and Rad; this film was Needham's lone western and for him a rare under performer at the box office.

The movie plays out as a live action Looney Tunes cartoon with Kirk Douglas as the stand in for the Road Runner. Sadly this was Paul Lynde's final film performance. These other familiar faces round out the cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ann-Margret, Foster Brooks, Ruth Buzzi, Jack Elam, Strother Martin, Robert Tessier, and Mel Tillis
