Destry Rides Again at NAU

Tonight’s movie in the NAU Film Series was Destry Rides Again. I do love this movie. Marlene Dietrich getting down and dirty, Jimmy Stewart outsmarting bad guys, and a fun story.

I still laugh at the whole concept. I’m trying to imagine the studio honchos who said “Let’s put Marlene Dietrich and Jimmy Stewart in a movie together… and let’s make the movie a Western!” Yet it works. Exotic and dangerous Dietrich with gangly and sweet Stewart. What a combo.
