Sammy Fain's hummable tunes and Paul Francis Webster's lyrics merit full-throated accompaniment.

Boisterous fun, with Day's performance - as the song goes - as busy as a fizzy sarsaparilla.

Even if the screenwriters were obviously inspired by the mega-success of Annie Get Your Gun, that doesn't make this funny, rambunctious entertainment a mere rip-off.

The opening sequence of this wonderful musical is pure pleasure, as Doris Day rides the Deadwood stage across the screen and into our hearts.

A must for Doris Day fans -- she gives a rousing, no-holds barred performance that is unquestionably the making of the film.

As a pistol-packin' cowgirl in fringed leather trousers, Day is terrific, an object of athletic awe and irrepressible good cheer.

The tunes are gold, and as Jane approaches a local creek, resplendent in her gorgeous yellow gown, we get one of the most famous visual gags in the history of the musical.

Doris Day works very, very hard at being Calamity and is hardly realistic at all.

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

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.

Christopher Null

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.
