Overview

James Stewart and Henry Fonda star in this light-hearted western comedy, directed by Gene Kelly. In 1870 Texas, John O' Hanlan (James Stewart), an itinerant cowboy, receives a letter notifying him that he has inherited a business establishment called the Cheyenne Social Club in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Thinking that he can finally settle down from his hard life on the trail and become a man of property, he travels with his friend Harley O'Sullivan (Henry Fonda) to Cheyenne to claim his property. Once there, he finds the Cheyenne Social Club to be a brothel, run by the attractive Madame Jenny (Shirley Jones). John is appalled, and while Harley is sampling the business's wares, John is planning to close the place down and turn it into a boardinghouse. But when the citizens of Cheyenne get wind of John's plan, they try to convince him to keep the whorehouse the way it is. However, all of this talk is tabled when John finds out that Jenny has been beaten by the disreputable Corey Bannister (Robert J. Wilke). John challenges him to a gunfight and kills him. Suddenly, John and Harley discover that they have the whole Bannister clan after them, and now they have to defend both themselves and the gals at the Cheyenne Social Club.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Hollywood’s favorite Everyman enjoyed tremendous popularity in the post-World War II years, when he began essaying more challenging, atypical roles -- Stewart’s wartime tenure in the Air Force having brought a new gravitas to his screen persona. In The Stratton Story (1949), he plays major-league baseball player Monty Stratton, who refused to allow the loss of a leg to curtail his career. The rough-edged western The Naked Spur (1953), the third of his important collaborations with director Anthony Mann, stars Stewart as a bounty hunter who almost meets his match in hard-boiled criminal Robert Ryan. The biopic The Spirit of St. Louis (1957), directed by Billy Wilder, casts Stewart as pioneering aviator Charles Lindbergh, whose daring 1927 transatlantic flight is at the movie’s heart. In the quasi-historical The FBI Story(1959), Stewart star as a career Bureau agent delving into high-profile investigations over a 30-year period. A leap in time finds a seasoned Stewart in two more westerns: Firecreek (1968) and The Cheyenne Social Club (1970), the latter teaming him with Henry Fonda, under the direction of Gene Kelly!
