Larry Karaszewski on

Westward the Women

Released 1951
Distributor Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

Directed by William Wellman and released in 1951, this unusual western stars John McIntire as a rancher who plays matchmaker to a town full of lonely California cowpokes. Leading man Robert Taylor is the rangerider charged with shepherding the adventurous brides to be—a diverse band of city slickers more than capable of holding their own, including the petite Parisian Denise Darcel and the towering Hope Emerson. This trailer, however, hasn’t aged well, especially the last card about wedding rings!
