Wanna fight? Thankfully I haven’t ever heard those words… well not since that one time we won’t speak about, or the other time that I don’t care to mention. Course, the time before that is the one that got all the press and there is no need to go into it any further. Other than to say,  don’t believe everything you read in the paper. They got most of it wrong, like for instance, that one guy was already broke like that when I got there.

Anyway, none of what I’ve seen or allegedly been a part of and I stress allegedly, beats this bar fight between and betwixt Marlene Dietrich, Una Merkel and Jimmy Stewart.This is from the 1939 film Destry Rides Again. It is so gleefully violent and comedic. For the life of me, it looks like Marlene is doing a lot of her own stunts. Also, if you watch this movie you’ll get a good idea of the origin of the character of Lili Von Shtüpp portrayed by Madeline Kahn in Blazing Saddles.
