      Tom C Fonda and Stewart....two of the greatest of all time. I've seen this movie several times over the years but I watched it again last night for the first time in many many years. It's a story about a fellow who inherited a brothel. What struck me this time around is the approach it took to prostitution. The girls could not be happier and friendlier. Why, you'd want your own wife or daughter to work at the Cheyenne Social Club! Males of the older generations would surely like to think of working girls like this. But in this era when we're aware of the evils of sex trafficking and such, this movie is a shocker. Gene Kelly, the World War II era singer and dancer directed and produced. I love the Greatest Generation but this issue was a horrible blind spot for them. (They've got me thinking like a dang feminist!) Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 08/25/23 Full Review Steve D Entertaining enough but should have been better. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Very charming fish out of water movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/11/21 Full Review Audience Member Its just light-hearted fun. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review ashley h The Cheyenne Social Club is a decent film. It is about a lazy cowhand and his laid-back partner inherit a piece of property: the Cheyenne Social Club. James Stewart and Henry give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Gene Kelly did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the humor and romance. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Two lead actors, Stewart and Fonda, make it worth watching but the concept gets old after the first hour.
