Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing around here... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is an oldie but a goodie, Westward The Women
Made in 1951, Westward the Women follows the lives of 200 women on an adventure that will take them from Chicago, IL all the way out west to California. 

Set in a time where out west ended basically at Texas, these women have been hand selected by Buck Wyatt (Robert Taylor) to make the trip out to California. These women are traveling across a treacherous path to the west and over the rocky mountains so they can meet their future husbands. Buck's farm is filled with all men who are lonely and need companionship while they start to populate California. 

Many of the women don't understand the kind of journey they'll have to endure to get there but with Buck's assistance and the women's perseverance they might just get there. They'll have to find strength within themselves and among each other.
