Destry Rides Again (1939) DVD9
Marlene Dietrich and James Stewart ride high in this superb comedic western, both a boisterous spoof and a shining example of its genre.

The film is set in the lawless western town of Bottleneck where the well-connected criminal Kent (Brian Donlevy) calls all the shots. The only person that dares to question his authority is Sheriff Keog (Joe King), which is why eventually he ends up with a bullet in his head. With Kent's blessing, the town's mayor then quickly appoints the popular drunkard Wash (Charles Winninger) to fill the vacancy and life returns to normal.

But Wash surprises everyone and shortly after welcomes in town Tom Destry Jr. (Jimmy Stewart), the son of a famous lawman he had once befriended, and appoints him deputy. Destry quickly figures out that Kent has the mayor and everyone else with some meaningful authority in town on a tight leash and then proceeds to find out the details behind Sheriff Keog's 'mysterious death'. While working on the case, Destry gradually warms up to the town's most popular beauty, saloon performer Frenchy (Marlene Dietrich), who is also in an open relationship with Kent.
