Destry Rides Again



I'm not sure it gets better than this. Cowboys, bad guy, dramatic tension, irony, hamming, slapstick, hubris, James Stewart, Marlene Dietrich and the best catfight in cinema history. I'd forgotten how very good this film is. I saw it years ago and always remembered it. It never gets shown on TV. My son recently started drinking milk in vast quantities and I told him about Destry's partiality for the cow juice and thought he'd enjoy the movie. And he did. As did I. It is even better than i remembered it.
