Nicholson is saved from hanging by the intervention of a lovely young woman who agrees to marry and take care of him. Mary Steenburgen plays Julia Tate, the headstrong but genteel Southern virgin who weds Nicholson only to help her work the gold mine she insists is on her property. Both Steenburgen and John Belushi make their film debuts in this amusing western.

National Lampoon’s Animal House on VHS. Starring John Belushi, Karen Allen, Tim Matheson, John Vernon, Verna Bloom, Tom Hulce, Stephen Furst. Directed by John Landis. 1978.
From the VHS box:
One of the most popular movie comedies of all time is also the film that made food fights an art form and John Belushi a star. This raunchy, screwball comedy directed with madcap zest by John Landis offers a relentless spoof of 1960’s college life by following the hilarious adventures of the Delta fraternity. There’s nothing this motley collection of students won’t do to get the best of Dean Wormer who secretly conspires to revoke Delta’s charter. In addition to Belushi as the guitar bashing, beer can smashing, garbage eating Bluto Blutarsky, the outstanding cast includes head skirt-chaser Tim Matheson, innocent freshman Thomas Hulce and Stephen “Flounder” Furst, and Otis Day and the Knights with their show-stopping performance of “Shout.”
Toga! Toga! Toga!
