As John and Harley sit at the table waiting for their steaks after the gunfight, John pours Harley then himself a whiskey, the color of the which is pale. When John talks to the Marshal moments later, he holds up his glass, and the whiskey is a shade darker. In the next shot of John and Harley, John's whiskey is back to its original color. See more »

Stewart and Fonda are good, but...
17 October 2006 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Is "The Cheyenne Social Club" a comedy or action Western? Director Gene Kelly tries to combine the two with very uneven results. Cowboy James Stewart receives a letter telling him that he has inherited property from his late brother so he starts out for Cheyenne along with his buddy, Henry Fonda. It is only after he arrives that Stewart finds out the Cheyenne Social Club is not a boarding house or saloon as he supposed, but, well, something else. Director Kelly plays up the discomfort Stewart feels being the not so proud owner and his futile efforts to close the place down, but most of the jokes in that vein fall flat. That is not to say we can't find humor as, for example, Stewart changing his politics when he fancies himself as a businessman, or Fonda cracking nuts at inopportune moments. Fonda's speeches as the credits are rolling are hilarious. Stewart listens politely until he can't take any more and finally has to tell Fonda to shut up. The movie is at its best when these two old pros are interacting with one another.
