Westward the Women (1951)
All Library locations will be closed on Sunday, April 20, in observance of the Easter holiday.
Veteran director William Wellman delivers this rousing prairie epic, with Robert Taylor as the lone male leading a wagon train of mail-order wives on a dangerous trek from Chicago to their husbands-to-be in recently-settled California. (118 minutes; NR)
To complement the Big Read effort and shed more light on the theme of women in the Old West, the Library throughout October is offering Women of the West, a free film series in the Stanley H. Durwood Film Vault at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
