Like its title character, Destry takes on the macho cliches of most Westerns, or, frankly, most movies. You could think of it as a socialist fable, if your mind tends that way. I wish I could resurrect Marlene Dietrich, both as a comedienne, and an action heroine. Wouldn't it be great to see a fist fight between her and Carole Lombard? I also got a crush on Jimmy Stewart, though this might be because he acts all Canadian.
