Destry is several kinds of film - a comedy, a Western, a musical, and a screwball too, touched by the visual extravagance of the films Dietrich made with von Sternberg, and strikingly modern in its merging of the fantastical and moralistic. A gleefully anarchic and unusually multi-racial version of the Old West, with Dietrich’s Frenchy, ‘the real boss of Bottleneck’, meeting her match in the ‘gun-shy lady-fingered deputy’, Tom Destry (Stewart).
