On the late morning of Tuesday 27th February 2018 (yesterday) I was scanning through my weekend magazine to see what was on. On page 55 I found that, at 12.35pm in their Film 4 program on Freeview 15; Freesat 300; Sky 315 & Virgin 428 (HD429) was a 1939 film – ‘Destry Rides Again’. The star, playing the sheriff, was James Stewart that ‘makes an enemy, later a friend, in the shape of a sultry saloon singer’. No mention was made of the real name of that woman but I knew who she was – I had written about her in my posting earlier this month. It was Marlene Dietrich!
I wonder if I could make this a valid excuse to sit at home and watch more films!
