Comments about this product:
This is a western and it is a comedy too. James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich is quite a pairing.
The town drunk is made sheriff of Bottleneck, Charles Winninger. He instantly reforms. He sends for the son of Destry, whom he once worked as a deputy for the father. He wants the best deputy possible.
Stewart is the new deputy. He helps a young woman down from the stagecoach, carrying her parasol and pet canary. He is a laughing-stock in front Winninger and other townsfolk that met the stage. Jack Carson was mistaken as the deputy, a new cattle baron. They go to the saloon to introduce Stewart. Brian Donlevy is the owner and town corrupter demands Stewart's guns. "Whoa, I'm unarmed!" says Stewart. The bar erupts in laughter too.
Marlene Dietrich is the saloon singer. She will entertain you with her bawdy songs, like "The Boys in the Back Room". She is entertaining in getting into a fight with the boarding house owner, Una Merkel, she wants her husband's pants back. You will giggle over this husband's antics, Mischa Auer, he is a whiff of laughing gas.
Will Stewart solve the murder of the past sheriff? Will Stewart keep the peace without guns? Will he rope Donlevy of crime? Will he win the town's respect? Will he win Dietrich affections?
I guarantee you will enjoy this movie.
