Destry Rides Again (1939)

When a tough western town needs taming, the mild-mannered son of a hard-nosed sheriff gets the job.

Book of Sand

Wonderfully entertaining movie with surprisingly good chemistry between Jimmy Stewart and Marlene Dietrich. Witty script almost makes it a screwball comedy-western.

What a bad ending! Movie ends with little girl's "Little Joe" song.

From the IMDb Trivia:

James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich had an affair which lasted for the duration of filming. She later claimed that she had to have an abortion after Stewart made her pregnant.

The chemistry is certainly palpable on the screen.
