As directed by Gene Kelly, this mildly amusing comedy Western benefits from the stature of Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart.

The film is easy to criticize but hard to fault, if you know what I mean.

Audience Reviews for The Cheyenne Social Club


Stewart and Fonda once again add substance to an otherwise journeyman western cum sex comedy.

Jimmy Stewart plays John O'Hanlan, an aging Texan cowpoke who unexpectedly inherits the rowdiest whorehouse in Cheyenne. So Stewart quits his job in Texas and rides to Cheyenne to claim his inheritance and saddle pal Henry Fonda goes along for the ride. But John incurs the wrath of the whole town when he decides to close it down and turn it into a boarding house. That is, until the lawyer tells him that it must remain The Cheyenne Social Club due to an agreement his deceased brother had with the railroad, whose right of way the house sits on. Trouble ensues when John kills a cowboy who beat up "one of his girls." The man's relatives, predictably, come to town to avenge the death of their beloved kin. The movie is at its best when these two old pros are interacting with one another.
