Directed by George Marshall
The thing about 1939 is that it is such a big year for film that I have seen most of the movies on the list from that year. This means that this is about my fourth review in a row and I still have three or four to go. I am getting slightly nonsensical and so I apologize.
It has been awhile since I have seen this but I didn't like it enough to watch it again. I am not a big Western fan but once I find a good one, I fall in love with it. This is not one of those films. There is nothing particularly wrong with it; in fact, the acting is quite good. I desperately wish, though, that Marlene would stop singing. It is not pleasant for anybody,
This film stars Jimmy Stewart. Movie test time, and if you are true fan, you will get this right. When Jimmy Stewart comes on screen is he:
a. experienced and savvy
b. naive and emotional
If you guessed a, get off this blog immediately. Actually, don't because I have very few readers. Anyway, this movie was funny at times but overall it was the same old same old.
Marlene and Jimmy had an affair during the filming of this movie. Apparently, he got her preggers and she had to have an abortion. I am scandalized!
The fight scene wasn't choreographed and both women had bruises for weeks but they filmed it in one take.
Bar scene, in case you are a guy and get turned on when women beat the living shit out of each other.
