Destry Rides Again (1939) DVD9
The town of Bottleneck is the personal fiefdom of the evil Kent, who, along with local madame Frenchy, cheats cowpokes and farmers out of their cash and property until he's in a position to extort huge fees out of cattle drovers who need to pass over Kent's ill-gotten land.
The sheriff soon ends up dead after trying to intervene on behalf of the property owner. As a joke, the town drunk is then made the new sheriff. He takes the job seriously, "I'm off the liquor. A man's got to choose between the bottle and the badge." He sends for his old partner's son, Destry, to help him out. His old partner was a tough John Wayne type, but it is mild mannered Jimmy Stewart who gets off the stagecoach.
Destry and Frenchy find themselves in love, and Destry starts gathering evidence that will send Kent and his cronies to the gallows.
