MCMXXXIX XLVIII: Destry Rides Again

Destry Rides Again. George Marshall. 1939.

Oh, I thought this was one of those serial movies… Destry Comes To Town… Destry Fights the Indians… Destry Rides Again.

But no; it’s got Marlene Dietrich, and it’s one of those them there serious westerns.

Well, OK, this isn’t exactly a serious western… but it’s mainly in the costumes and the set design: The story itself is quite lighthearted. It’s about a wimpy-looking new sheriff arriving in a rough town and cleaning it up.

This blog post is part of the 1939
