Goofs

In the last scene, when John receives a letter while working a cattle roundup, the letter is sealed when it's handed to him, but when he takes off his work glove to take the letter out of the envelope and read it, the flap is unsealed, as if it never had been sealed at all. See more »

Quotes

Harley Sullivan: Do you know how to make Indian whiskey, John?
John O'Hanlan: No, Harley.
Harley Sullivan: Well, you take a barrel of Missouri River water and a couple of gallons of alcohol and some strychnine to make them crazy, and tobacco to make them sick. An Indian wouldn't figure it was whiskey unless it made him sick. Add a few bars of soap to put a head on it and then a half-pound or so of red pepper to give it a kick. Put some tumbleweed in, boil it until it turns brown, and that's Indian whiskey.

It's a movie highly desirable to spend 103 fun minutes.
12 March 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

"John", (James Stewart) a cowboy from Texas, after the death of his brother receives an unusual legacy: The Cheyenne social club. When "John", to which accompanies his inseparable friend "Sullivan" (Henry Fonda), another cowboy from Texas who leads riding more than 10 years at his side, decides to go in search of the business of his brother discovers that it is a Club of joyful girls with a great tradition in the region.

Two masters of the interpretation, James Stewart and Henry Fonda, there are cited in this atypical but fun western where a lot of jokes and comical attitudes, in addition to a multitude of absurd situations, accompanied by some secondary players very good. It also appreciates good decorated and magnificent affairs in the first drawings of the film.

Gene Kelly, an expert dancer and choreographer, "Singin' in the Rain" dares to lead this western with excellent results, and offers us here an entertaining comedy without major claims.

The 70 was an apocalyptic decade for the western. The great directors had died or were withdrawn from cinema. Only John Wayne and Clint Eastwood continued to westerns. This is why we admire decision of Gene Kelly to make an original film, little sight and sound touches of humor.
