Screen legend Mae West (I’m No Angel) stars in the screwball comedy Go West Young Man, about a frustrated actress whose amorous desires keep getting her in trouble. Movie star Mavis Arden (West) is bound by a contract stating that she cannot marry for five years, which her press agent Morgan (Warren William, Employees’ Entrance) strictly enforces. While on a publicity tour, their car breaks down and leaves them stuck in a boarding house full of odd characters. One in particular catches Mavis’ eye—the robust farmhand Bud (Randolph Scott, Western Union). Mavis seductively pursues Bud and quickly learns the ramifications of small-town gossip. Mayhem mounts as police, following a tip, suspect Mavis has been kidnapped by Morgan. Enjoying her chance to get even, she concedes to having Morgan arrested, but he has got a confession that even she did not bargain for! Screenplay by West and wonderful direction by the great Henry Hathaway (The Lives of a Bengal Lancer, The Shepherd of the Hills, Rawhide).
