Westward Ho is a 1935 American Western film released by Republic Pictures, produced by Paul Malvern, directed by Robert N. Bradbury and starring John Wayne in his first film for Republic. The trio had previously filmed a series of "Lone Star Westerns" for Monogram Pictures until Monogram merged into Republic pictures.


John Wyatt (John Wayne) vows to avenge the death of his parents at the hands of cattle rustlers. Years later, Wyatt is put in charge of a band of vigilantes, bent on rounding up a gang of outlaws. He discovers that one of the bandits is his own long-lost brother Jim Wyatt (Frank McGlynn Jr.) This revelation eventually leads John to the men responsible for the slaughter of his family.[2]
