Neither great, nor perhaps even very good, the film remains a charming artifact.

Doris Day wheels out Que Sera yet again in a comic western that will appeal to fans of romantic musicals. Of which I am not one.

Doris Day is on a role with this role. The songs, oh the songs. Howard Keel... The old west. The humour. The fun. The action. Oh how I love this film!
