In a time when "The West" pretty much ends in Texas and only California is slowly being populated by the white men, there's a severe lack of women among the workers on Roy Whitman's farm in the California Valley. So he goes back east to Chicago to recruit 150 women willing to become wives for his employees.

How this movie got made in 1951 is a miracle. In an age when women were used for decoration and sex objects, Westward the Women is remarkable. It is funny, poignant, historical, and just plain wonderful. The cast is outstanding, especially the women. And, Denise Darcel gives the performance of her career. Hope Emerson almost steals the movie.
