Movie Info

To escape the attentions of a trio of eager bachelors, nubile Manhattanite Molly Truesdale (Jean Arthur) leaves for a bus tour of the American West led by eccentric guide Smiley Lambert (Phil Silvers). During one of the stops, Truesdale has an exchange with handsome but crude rodeo rider Duke Hudkins (John Wayne). After Truesdale reluctantly agrees to accompany the unrefined Hudkins on a night on the town, she finds herself slowly being charmed by his backward country ways.

Audience Reviews for A Lady Takes a Chance

  • Mar 30, 2019
    East meets West in this easygoing, time-passing romantic comedy about a city girl (Jean Arthur) who meets a cowboy (John Wayne), and their one night out in a Western town. It depends wholly on the charm of the leads and there's just enough of that to get by, but hardly anything more than that. It's not bad.

    This is really a combination of a lot of different genres and has interesting moments, it just doesn't really go anywhere. The only praise I have for it is John Wayne, he still manages to be charming and cool. I think it fails mainly in that it takes the perspective of Jean Arthur's character when she really isn't all that strong.

    Silly comedy of opposites attracting with Arthur and Wayne the oil and water couple. They don't have the greatest chemistry but with each doing their patented bit the film is easy enough to take.
