More entertaining and interesting in theory than in practice, Destry Rides Again is one of those canonized classics that I possibly just don’t get. Perhaps I was expecting too much walking into this film, but I found its combination of western and comedy too broad.

"Directed by the largely forgotten George Marshall, 'Destry Rides Again' is a brilliantly fun comic Western packed with event. It boasts laughs, thrills, suspense, drama and even a couple of musical numbers among its numerous attractions. The film begins with the classic set-up of a couple of heels holding a whole town in their power, colluding to get the town drunk appointed as sheriff in the assumption he will be easy to control. Instead, the new sheriff calls on the son of legendry lawman and "
