DARK COMMAND - John Wayne is good guy Bob Seton in Raoul Walsh's star-studded thriller set in the dark days before the Civil War. During this strained period in America's history, emotions run high and tension fills the air, especially during political contests. In the race for Federal Marshall of Kansas, Seton defeats William Cantrell (Walter Pidgeon), causing increased animosity between these two powerful figures. Their mutual ill will peaks when Cantrell steals Seton's girl (Claire Trevor), manipulating her into marriage to get even with Seton. Their rivalry reaches dangerous proportions when Seton exposes Cantrell and his guerrillas who have been raiding both Union and Confederate lines. Roy Rogers co-stars in one of his earliest film roles. A LADY TAKES A CHANCE - Finding men has never been a problem for city girl Molly Trousdale (Jean Arthur) - finding the right man is another matter. And women have never been a problem for cowboy bachelor Duke Hutkins (John Wayne) - until they want to marry him. If it's true that opposites attract, they're obviously made for each other. When Molly sets out from New York on a cross-country bus tour, she just wants to see America. But her plans take an unexpected turn out West, when she collides (literally!) with Duke while he's competing at the rodeo. He assumes she's just another pretty gal who'll fall into his arms, but she's a lady who won't be roped easily by a brawling, rough-and-ready cowboy. Jean Arthur shows the spunk that made her one of the biggest stars of Hollywood's Golden Era, and John Wayne is at his most charming when he falls for her against his better judgment. So get ready for the dust to fly when these two screen legends star in a truly classic romantic comedy, A LADY TAKES A CHANCE!

A Lady Takes A Chance, with John Wayne and Jean Arthur is a great fun "modern" (they drive cars, not horses) western of how East meets West and the two DO MEET!!
If you want HD and excellent color, then you are looking in the wrong place.
However, If you want great movies from back in the old days where it took good acting and good scripting to make great movies instead of sex and violence, you will love these!
"A Lady Takes a Chance" is a typical boy-meets-girl film with Wayne playing it almost stright against the charming Jean Arthur. The film includes small parts (as mentioned elsewhere) by Phil Silvers playing his usual self and one by Hans Conreid--that name might be mispelled. The film is a nice outing and there are enough laughs to keep the viewer tuned in even when you seem to know you've seen the plot before. The only draw back is that the print is showing its age and is in need of a restoration job. With films like these, you can realize that Wayne's days as a Grade B actors were over.
