Wonderfully entertaining movie with surprisingly good chemistry between Jimmy Stewart and Marlene Dietrich. Witty script almost makes it a screwball comedy-western.
The female character in Blazing Saddles makes so much more sense after seeing Marlene Dietrich's character in this film.
From the IMDb Trivia:
James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich had an affair which lasted for the duration of filming. She later claimed that she had to have an abortion after Stewart made her pregnant.
The chemistry is certainly palpable on the screen.
