Standard western elements are all present in this short subject...
There's nothing the least bit new or inventive in WAGON WHEELS WEST. It's the kind of routine western fare that I avoided when I was a kid and it fares no better today.
Travelers en route to California are preyed upon by baddies who want to rob them of their money. As their horse and wagon goes on its way, they're pursued, the father (ADDISON RICHARDS) is killed and his boy survives the attack by rolling down an embankment and hiding out.
The tale picks up with the boy as the man (ROBERT SHAYNE) who gets a chance to play hero and take care of the villains.
It ends with a barn dance celebration after a brief scene showing Shayne with NINA FOCH--who has only a tiny role in this western short.
Nothing special here--very routine and easily skipped. Some stock footage from old Warner Bros. films is used as filler.
