Destry Rides Again (1939)

Directed by
George Marshall

Marlene Dietrich and James Stewart star in George Marshall's classic comedy western. Tom Destry returns to Bottleneck to discover the town his father once served as sheriff is now a lawless place. Saloon owner Kent is the de facto ruler; he and his girlfriend Frenchy keep the local citizens and ranchers in an economic stranglehold via various criminal schemes. And the conniving, corrupt mayor has replaced the dead sheriff with the town drunk. So, expert marksman Destry sets about cleaning up Bottleneck by force of persuasion and good humour - without wearing, let alone resorting to drawing, his gun. Sceptical at first, the townsfolk start to respond to Destry's methods. But will Kent? Phenomenal continues: Film4's month-long female-focused season celebrating women in film, on both sides of the camera.
