  • Destry Rides Again [1939]Destry Rides Again | DVD | (04/06/2007) from £4.49   |  Saving you £5.50 (55.10%)   |  RRP £9.99

    Destry Rides Again will forever be remembered for Marlene Dietrich's performance as Frenchy a crooked saloon waitress with a heart of gold. Her rendition of ""See What the Boys in the Back Room Will Have"" is one of the highlights of her career. But Destry Rides Again has much more to offer than just Dietrich's performance. This hilarious satire carries Jimmy Stewart in the lead as Tom Destry a supposedly tough law enforcement man who doesn't like guns. Stewart's comic touches are brilliant as he eagerly gives out educational anecdotes anytime an opportunity affords itself. The plot concerns the efforts of a saloon owner and a corrupt Mayor to rob the local cowpokes blind. Frenchy's on the payroll of the bad guys but when sparks fly between her and Destry her loyalty becomes a deciding factor in whether it's Destry or the bad guys who will ride off into the sunset.
