The Lady from Cheyenne is a 1941 American comedy western film directed by Frank Lloyd and starring Loretta Young, Robert Preston and Edward Arnold.


In the 1860s, after receiving an inheritance a Philadelphia Quaker school teacher heads west to Wyoming to establish a new school to educate settler children. However, she encounters a corrupt tycoon who is determined to gain control of the water rights of her schoolhouse. She eventually lobbies to gain women the right to vote in local elections, and defeats the villain with the assistance of a lawyer whom she eventually marries.



The film was shot at Universal Studios, and on location in the Mojave Desert. It was made for $535,000, somewhat under its scheduled budget of $622,000.[2]
