Destry Rides Again (1939) (Criterion Collection) UK Only Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

MARLENE DIETRICH (Blonde Venus) and JAMES STEWART (Vertigo) ride high in this superb comedic western, both a boisterous spoof and a shining example of the genre it is having fun with. As the brawling, rough-and-tumble saloon singer Frenchy, Dietrich shed her exotic love-goddess image and launched a triumphant career comeback, while Stewart cemented his amiable everyman persona, in his first of many westerns, with a charming turn as a gun-abhorring deputy sheriff who uses his wits to bring law and order to the frontier town of Bottleneck. A sparkling script, a supporting... cast of virtuoso character actors, and rollicking musical numbers - delivered with unmatched bravado by the magnetic Dietrich - come together to create an irresistible, oft-imitated marvel of studio-era craftsmanship. Special Features: New 4K digital restoration by Universal Pictures in collaboration with The Film Foundation, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray New interview with critic Imogen Sara Smith New interview with Donald Dewey, author of James Stewart: A Biography New video essay featuring excerpts from a 1973 oral-history interview with director George Marshall, conducted by the American Film Institute Lux Radio Theatre adaptation of the film from 1945, featuring actors James Stewart and Joan Blondell PLUS: An essay by critic Farran Smith Nehme [show more]
