THE CHEYENNE SOCIAL CLUB (Theatrical Release USA 1970)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Cheyenne Social Club—loveable and comical—teams two classic actors, James Stewart and Henry Fonda, to create a fresh, original movie that viewers will not soon forget. The wonderful placement of the characters is established early on in the film with much elaboration developed throughout the movie. No character contradictions here. Surprising to see Gene Kelly as the director. The film is based on sexual innuendos but know there are no explicit sex or nudity scenes in the film.

Buy a ticket
? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. High comedy and delicate handling of subject matter mark this film as a great watch. More than worth the time and money investment. Buy that ticket!
