Westward the Women Geregisseerd door William A. Wellman


…Westward Women is a strong candidate for Wellman’s finest western… The hars circumstances – a vision of blood, sweat, tears – could easily make the perspective of the promised land look like a hallucinatory dream, bound to vanish – but it does not. That is why he gives us a scene of a baby being born, with the art to create the feeling of a collective birth event.

…This gives rise to the central irony of Westward the Women: only masculinized women could succeed in transporting femininity across the frontier. Wellman seems sensitive to this irony, presenting the women’s masculinization as a necessary survival tactic, forgoing an illustration of the superiority of masculine traits.
