Karen Valentine, who's probably starred in more unsold pilots than McLean Stevenson and Don Meredith combined, stars in this made-for-TV comedy western. Playing a "Nellie Bly" type reporter, Karen heads thattaway, hoping to interview Billy the Kid (Richard Jaeckel). This might prove difficult in that Billy has supposedly been dead for years. Valentine is joined in her quest by Billy's sister (Sandra Will), a cavalry officer's widow who likewise doesn't swallow the official story of Billy's final, fatal showdown. "They've Taken Off Their Petticoats and Strapped On Their Guns!" read the TV Guide ad copy for Go West, Young Girl. No one watched anyway.
