Go West is a classic comedy film from 1925 starring one of the greatest silent film stars of all time, Buster Keaton. The film tells the story of a young man named Friendless, played by Keaton, who leaves his hometown in search of success and adventure in the big city. After a series of misadventures in the city, Friendless finds himself broke and homeless. He stumbles upon a job at a local cattle ranch, run by a kindly old cowboy named Brown Eyes and his daughter, who take pity on the young man and give him a chance.

At first, Friendless is completely out of his element on the ranch. He can't ride a horse, he can't rope a steer, and he can barely handle a shovel. But with hard work and determination, he gradually learns the ropes and becomes an indispensable member of the ranch crew.

As Friendless grows more confident in his role, he also starts to develop a bond with Brown Eyes and his daughter. He also meets a beautiful young woman named Sal, who works at a nearby circus. Sal is played by Kathleen Myers, who brings a lively energy to the film and provides a delightful romantic subplot.

However, Friendless soon discovers that the cattle ranch is in danger of going bankrupt. Desperate to save the ranch and his newfound family, he comes up with a crazy scheme to drive the herd of cattle all the way to New York City, where he hopes to sell them to a local butcher and make a fortune.

The rest of the film follows Friendless and his companions on their epic journey across the country, facing numerous obstacles and challenges along the way. The film features some of the most memorable and hilarious scenes in Keaton's career, including a classic gag in which he tries to milk a cow while riding on the back of a horse.

Despite the many obstacles that they face on their journey, Friendless and his companions finally make it to New York City. But as they attempt to sell the herd of cattle to the local butcher, they run into unforeseen complications that threaten to ruin everything.

Go West is a timeless classic that showcases the unique talents of Buster Keaton. With its blend of physical comedy, heartfelt emotion, and sweeping adventure, the film is a true masterpiece of the silent era. Whether you're a longtime fan of Keaton or a newcomer to his work, Go West is a film that is sure to delight and entertain.
