Plot: Jimmy Stewart and Henry Fonda play perfectly off each other in this witty Western comedy. Stewart is John O'Hanlan, a career cowboy who rides to Cheyenne when he learns that his brother has bequeathed him his business there. Fonda is his faithful sidekick, Harley Sullivan, who can't give O'Hanlan a straight answer as to why he has ridden at O'Hanlan's side for the last 10 years. When they finally arrive in Cheyenne, it is only to discover--to O'Hanlan's horror and Sullivan's delight--that the business O'Hanlan has inherited is the popular local cathouse. When O'Hanlan decides to shut the house down, the instant popularity he had enjoyed in Cheyenne turns into a townwide cold shoulder. The cowboy is still determined to become a "man of property," though, and turn the place into a boardinghouse--until his lawyer's revelations and a town bully's actions change his mind. The low-key O'Hanlan gears up for battle and must decide which way his life will blow in the winds of fortune. Shirley Jones heads up the gaggle of lovely working girls O'Hanlan inherits. The film owes much of its appeal to the clever, engaging banter between the dry, ingenuous Stewart and Fonda's charming rake of a cowpoke.
