Embezzler, shill, all around confidence man S. Quentin Quale is heading west to find his fortune; he meets the crafty but simple brothers Joseph and Rusty Panello in a train station, where they steal all his money. They''re heading west, too, because they''ve heard you can just pick the gold off the ground. Once there, they befriend an old miner named Dan Wilson whose property, Dead Man''s Gulch, has no gold. They loan him their last ten dollars so he can go start life anew, and for collateral, he gives them the deed to the Gulch. Unbeknownst to Wilson, the son of his longtime rival, Terry Turner (who''s also in love with his daughter, Eva), has contacted the railroad to arrange for them to build through the land, making the old man rich and hopefully resolving the feud. But the evil Red Baxter, owner of a saloon, tricks the boys out of the deed, and it''s up to them - as well as Quale, who naturally finds his way out west anyway - to save the day.

I really liked this

I really enjoyed Go West. I thought the first forty-five minutes or so was terrific and very funny and even touching in spots. The movie bogs down in the middle with a very hokey song about "Riding the range" and an unfunny and overly stereotypical segment featuring native Americans. An earlier song sung by June MacCloy is disturbingly mannish and also flops. The sequence where the brothers tear apart a train for firewood is passable as a whole with some funny bits. Go West moves along very well, isn''t overly complicated or bogged down (except for the middle) and is fun and entertaining overall.
