Destry 1954 Audie Murphy Western
Stars: Audie Murphy, Mari Blanchard, Lyle Bettger
In the old West, a small frontier town is being controlled by ruthless mob boss Decker and his cronies. After the local sheriff dies under mysterious circumstances, Decker arranges to have the town drunk appointed sheriff, thinking he will be ineffectual. But the new sheriff sends for Tom Destry, son of a famous two-fisted lawman, to be his deputy. When Tom arrives, he isn’t exactly the swaggering he-man the sheriff had in mind. But the new deputy’s mild exterior masks a fierce determination to see justice done, as Decker and the other locals soon discover.
When Audie Murphy as Destry comes to town it’s without wearing firearms, but in his own quiet way Audie gets results.
Sometimes remakes do turn out for the best. Audie Murphy was perfect in the casting of another edition of the Destry saga. Destry’s grown up considerably. Audie uses some forensic science to clean up the town and the final gunfight is played a bit more seriously than in the James Stewart-Marlene Dietrich classic.
