Go West Young Lady / 1941

Go West Young Lady is a Western in the broadest sense … mostly cuz it has two great broads in it: Penny Singleton and Anne Miller.

33-year-old Singleton was the Young Lady going West – and the top billed Star, but … we can see by at least 2 posters that an 18-year-old Anne Miller had easily muscled her way to the front – smiling all the way.

“The Musical Western with OOMPH!”

Anything with Anne Miller was bound to have plenty of “OOMPH” !

Singleton and Miller vs Ford

In 1941 Penny Singleton was an established ‘box office’ Star with over 20 films, plus assorted stage work. Meanwhile Anne Miller had 15 movies under her 18-year-old heels and had been melting the scenery for quite a while.  Young Glenn Ford, (25-years-old), sandwiched between Miller and Singleton would appear to be ‘in tough’. Yet he’s completely at ease and up to the task. Good job Glenn!

Anne Miller / Unstoppable!

The don’t make ’em like this any more. They don’t know how.

Anne Miller could crowd a rhino out of playpen – and had the kicks to back it.

 She was brazen … she was blazing … she was brilliant. And she knew it.

She was a blistering bar top dancer … who loved what she was doing. And so did we.

Turner Classic Movies says:

“The chemistry between Singleton and Ford brings charm to this delightful “B” picture, while plenty of action keeps the plot moving at the pace of a speeding bullet. Numbers from Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys, Penny Singleton and Ann Miller (who shines in an early role as saloon girl Lola) provide plenty of good music throughout. Some of the tunes include “Somewhere Along the Trail,” “I Wish I Could Be a Singing Cowboy”, and “Gentlemen Don’t Prefer a Lady”. http://www.tcm.com/this-month/article/161277%7C0/Go-West-Young-Lady.html
