John, dude, I'm right there with you on Destry Rides Again. It's actually very interesting that this is a "revisionist" western so relatively early in film history. Most of the iconic westerns you hear of or the ones that I'm familiar with started after the 1930s (not including Stagecoach from the same year). You can definitely see it as a precursor to films like Blazing Saddles, but also Little Big Man and even Rio Bravo (in terms of wanting to revise High Noon). This film is very much responding to a trend it sensed in western films up to that point.
