PLOT (spoiler alert!!!):
Sometime in the near future a high-tech, highly realistic adult amusement park called Delos features androids that are almost indistinguishable from human beings. For $1,000 per day, guests may indulge in any fantasy, including killing or having sex with the androids. Delos’ tagline in its advertising promises “Have we got a vacation for you!” The androids are programmed to act in character for each of the park’s three themed “worlds” — West World (the American Old West), Medieval World (medieval Europe), and Roman World (pre-Christian Rome). One of the attractions in West World is the Gunslinger (Brynner), a robot programmed to start duels. Thanks to its programming, humans can always outdraw the Gunslinger and kill it. The guns issued to the guests also have temperature sensors that prevent them from shooting each other or anything else living, but allow them to “kill” the “cold blooded” androids.
