Westward the Women (11-Jan-1951)

Director: William A. Wellman

Writers: Charles Schnee; Frank Capra

Producer: Dore Schary

Keywords: Western

Wagon master Robert Taylor escorts a cargo of mail-order brides from St. Louis to California in 1851. Not all of them arrive at their destination. This is one of the few westerns focused on the women. Excellent script, character development and fine acting make this a top-notch all the way.
