Westbound is a 1959 American Western film directed by Budd Boetticher and starring Randolph Scott, Virginia Mayo, and Karen Steele. This is the sixth of seven films directed by Boetticher and starring Scott. The movie was shot in September 1957 in Warnercolor. at cost of more than a half-million dollars. The Laramie Street set at Warner’s Burbank was used for the setting of Julesburg, Colorado. The Warner Ranch was used for other settings. David Buttolph composed the score. Westbound was released on April 25, 1959. The movie was not a part of the Ranown cycle of Westerns for which Boetticher, Scott and Harry Joe Brown partnered; Scott owed Warners one picture from an old contract, so Boetticher volunteered to direct it himself so as to protect their brand. Although Boetticher never went so far as to disown the film, he felt it was not part of the series and would only discuss it outside of that context.
