Destry Rides Again1939 – 95 min. – B&W – Comedy/Western

Starring James Stewart, Marlene Dietrich, and Brian Donlevy

Marvelous comedy Western, with Stewart’s pacifist, reputedly wimpy marshal taming the lawless town of Bottleneck by means of words and jokes rather than the gun Donlevy’s villain repeatedly provokes him to use. What is remarkable about the film is the way it combines humor, romance, suspense, and action so seamlessly (with individual scenes—Dietrich singing “See What the Boys in the Back Room Will Have”; Stewart’s delicious parable about a homicidal orphan; Mischa Auer losing his pants—indelibly imprinted on the memory). Flawless performances, paced direction, and a snappy script place it head and shoulders above virtually any other spoof oater. (Time Out)
