Isn't it interesting to think of Destry Rides Again as a statement on the role of the United States in World War II, current and anticipated. At first the country tried to deal with the deteriorating international situatiion through nonmilitary means, but later (after the movie was made) it was compelled by events to strap on its guns and get involved in the story ending big shoot out. Some of the people involved in the making of the movie must have been thinking along these lines. Mel Brooks underscored this point in Blazing Saddles when he gave Frenchie a German name more consistent with Marlene's country of origin. This vantage point doesn't make the movie any bigger or smaller, only easier to understand in the context of its time. And this is to say nothing about the role Marlene played in expanding the role of women in art and life. She was able to take the magical but not unlimited powers given to women and broaden them and bend them to her will. Only Marilyn was her peer.

Filme classico westerns e um dos meus prediletos com a Marlene Dietrich que está linda e fascinante.
A Pure Classic
This is definately one of my favorite Classic Westerns. It's fun but still has a great dramatic punch.
I wish Destry would ride all the time
Of course I love Jimmy Stewart in anything - he could talk about dirt and I'd be captivated for hours. But this truly is a well-written, well-acted movie that I don't remember enjoying so much as when I last saw it. So funny and so entertaining with a cast full of lovable, original characters. I love it! Worth it for any Jimmy Stewart fan - or not!
