Movie-of-the-Month: “Destry Rides Again”
November 16, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The next film in NCC’s series is Destry Rides Again, a 1939 Western satire starring Marlene Dietrich and James Stewart. The film will be shown on Thursday, November 16th at 6:30 p.m. in the East Campus theatre.
With deft, expert direction by George Marshall and terrific chemistry between leads Stewart and Dietrich, the film features a dynamite supporting cast, with villain Brian Donleavy stealing every scene he is in. The film is based on a story by legendary Western author Max Brand, with a script that seamlessly blends the story’s humor, action and romance into a delicious, spicy Western gumbo that is impossible to dislike. Stewart is at his boyish, laconic best and Dietrich gets to throw punches and sing “See What the Boys in the Back Room Will Have!” The film is a pure delight, wonderfully entertaining, and way ahead of its time.
The screening is hosted by Byron Matthews of NCC’s Lifetime Learners Program. For more information, please contact Gary Carlson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
