Destry Rides Again. 1932. USA. Directed by Benjamin Stoloff. 61 min.
The legendary cowboy star Tom Mix was nearing the end of his career when he made his belated feature talkie debut in Ben Stoloff’s adaptation of Max Brand’s novel, which stands here as representation for the hundreds of Westerns that kept Universal afloat throughout the history of the studio. The title, but not much else, was later borrowed for the famous 1939 comic western starring James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich.
