Destry Rides Again (1939)

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Date with Destry

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Jimmy Stewart stars with top-billed Marlene Dietrich in George Marshall's comedy-Western Destry Rides Again (1939, Universal, $14.98), in which he plays the non-violent son of a famous gunfighter who falls for the lure of a barroom singer (Dietrich). While not a major film, it's one of those odd Hollywood mixtures where everything comes together just right.
