This spoof of B-western stereotypes fails to work despite the talents of a number of fine performers. Douglas is the classical villain who continually attempts to abduct fair damsel Ann-Margret and is as continually thwarted by handsome, taciturn hero Schwarzenegger. Douglas' involved

plots are routinely foiled in this cartoon-like feature which plays like a ROADRUNNER episode using live actors. The denouement has the fair damsel electing to go with the incompetent Douglas, his lustiness apparently more attriactive than Schwartzenegger's sterile valor. Another broad-brush,

unfunny feature from one-time stunt director Needham.
