Go West (1925) is a silent movie starring Buster Keaton.

Keaton portrays Friendless, who travels west to try to make his fortune. Once there, he tries his hand at bronco-busting, cattle wrangling, and dairy farming, eventually forming a bond with a cow named "Brown Eyes." Eventually he finds himself leading a herd of cattle through Los Angeles.

Seventy years after the release of the film guitarist Bill Frisell recorded a soundtrack accompaniment Go West: Music for the Films of Buster Keaton (1995). The Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra premiered its new score for the film in 2007.
