Destry Rides Again

8 years, 3 months ago at Aug 27 21:06
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. As a straight-up western, it’s fun and enjoyable with elements of comedy and farce spliced in at around. But it’s not the out-an... read more

Kent, the unscrupulous boss of Bottleneck has Sheriff Keogh killed when he asks one too many questions about a rigged poker game that gives Kent a stranglehold over the local cattle rangers. The mayor, who is in cahoots with Kent appoints the town drunk, Washington Dimsdale, as the new sheriff assuming that he'll be easy to control. But what the mayor doesn't know is that Dimsdale was a deputy under famous lawman, Tom Destry, and is able to call upon the equally formidable Tom Destry Jr to be his deputy.

Slant's 100 Best Westerns of All Time (100 movies items)

"Destry Rides Again’s Bottleneck is essentially the same town as the one in “Drip-Along Daffy.” The opening crane shots of Bottleneck show the standard storefronts that western audiences are accustomed to seeing: feed and general stores, the jail, the Saloon. As the camera moves along the street, we see just about every possible vice happening all at once with bullets whizzing about the crowded streets—and all the while, Frank Skinner’s intense score adds to the feeling of utter lawless"

"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 "
