Classic films: 'High Noon' and 'Destry Rides Again'


A retired marshal is set to leave his ungrateful western town with his new bride when he learns an old enemy is back with a vengeance in the classic "High Noon," starring Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly, showing at the Stanford Theatre, 221 University Ave. in Palo Alto, on Saturday and Sunday at 4:10 and 7:30 p.m. Joining the bill at 5:45 and 9:45 p.m. is "Destry Rides Again," a western/comedy/musical starring Jimmy Stewart, as a mild-mannered sheriff. Admission to both films is $7 adults/$5 kids and seniors. Go to Stanford Theatre.

And for all fans of "Blazing Saddles", it's worth noting that the Madeline Kahn character ("Lili von Stuppe") was directly based on the Marlene Dietrich character ("Frenchy" though she speaks in an accent that is most definitely not French) in "Destry Rides Again." See Destry, then watch Blazing Saddles again!
