George Marshall directs Marlene Dietrich, James Stewart and Mischa Auer in this comedy western about a pacifist deputy who cleans up the town using wit rather than bullets, catching the eye of a corrupt but beautiful saloon songstress.
How the West was fun. There are cat fights and witty repartee, close cons and strange teutonic show numbers. It breezes along, but I wonder how much someone who experienced the Wild West, and survivors were still very much alive at this point, would recognise it all to their own experiences? Good early Stewart.
