can't remember ever seeing this film but i guessed by the 3 lead actors it had to be good and it certainly did not dissapoint . basically its the story of a wagon train heading towards oregon and the difficulties they encounter on their travels , its similar to "how the west was won" which was an exceptional film and if you liked that film you will also like this one .enjoy.

Format: DVD
The Way West is directed by Andrew V. McLaglen and adapted to screenplay by Ben Maddow and Mitch Lindemann from the novel of the same name written by A.B. Guthrie Jr. It stars Kirk Douglas, Robert Mitchum, Richard Widmark, Sally Field, Lola Albright, Michael McGreevey, Jack Elam, Katherine Justice and Stubby Kaye. Music is by Bronislau Kaper and cinematography by William H. Clothier.

1843 and a former U.S. senator leads a wagon train of settlers to Oregon where he plans to build a new town. However, his rules of discipline and organisational skills leads to growing dissatisfaction with his leadership.

Frustrating! Such potential with the cast and story to hand, that The Way West meanders along and outstays its welcome is a crying shame. The blame is shared around, though, the screenplay doesn't offer up much for the cast to get their teeth into, which means Mitchum phones it in and Douglas tilts over the edge in trying to liven proceedings. McLaglen isn't confident enough to spruce the narrative with excitement, choosing instead a more maudlin approach as the many "pioneer character" threads start to feel superfluous to the story's worth. Especially bad is a teen romance between Field and McGreevey, as unnecessary as it is distracting.

Clothier's photography around the various Oregon locations is superb, fit to be in a John Ford movie in fact. The vibrant landscapes and the 100% outdoor production ensure there is at least some good to take away from the movie. We can also say that the odd interjection of drama, such as that involving the accidental killing of a Sioux child - and the subsequent "internal" discipline that follows - maintains interest. But once we reach the finale, and Widmark's Lije Evans yells it's on to Oregon, you may find yourself angry that Clothier and yourself deserved a far better movie. 5/10

This is a classic western with a great cast and storyline, Andrew Mc Lagen does a great job of directing, Richard Widmark and Kirk Douglas turn in excellent performances.
If you haven't seen this film before, don't worry about spending your money, it is a worthwhile investment. I'm not like other reviewers who go to great lengths to write a load of useless spiel about the film. My advice is watch it if it is on television, if a friend has copy of it, ask if you can borrow it, then make up your own mind.

Format: DVD
A very average western which alternates between the banal and the trite. Some wonderful photography and a big named cast, but neither manages to lift this film above the very ordinary. I was disappointed because, as a rule, I like westerns. This one, however, had so many clichéd scenes, I had difficulty in seeing it through.
