Doris Day looks no more like the real Calamity Jane than you or I do, but this 1953 film is intended as a lighthearted musical, not a historical tract. As portrayed by the freckled Ms. Day, Jane is a rootin', tootin' shootin' hoyden in the western town of Deadwood. When she isn't tearing up the town, Jane spends her time cussing out Wild Bill Hickok (Howard Keel). The plot gets under way when Jane promises the citizens of Deadwood that she can persuade classy Chicago stage star Adelaide Adams

Watch It Now
Neither great, nor perhaps even very good, the film remains a charming artifact.
Fun, snappy Warner musical with colorful Day and Keel.
Poorly directed by David Butler, this musical version of Annie Get Your Gun, features the popular Oscar-winning song, Secret Love, sung by Doris Day.
so removed from even the most imperceptable nod toward reality that even a history know-nothing like myself found its liberties on the distasteful side
An OK musical, derivative of Annie Get Your Gun, which is 100 times better.
