Storyline

The best job on this film is the one performed by director/writer/producer Ande Lamb when he persuaded somebody at Columbia to put their logo on this indie production that looks a little like what PRC might have made on a bad day, and once past the first five-billed players it is a game of "who dat?" This one finds Calamity Jane learning that her ownership of the "Prairie Queen" saloon, bequeathed to her by the late unseen Frank Mullen, is going to be disputed by Frank's niece, Cecelia Mullen and her lawyer, Gordon Hastings, brought to town by her rival saloon owner Matt Baker. Calamity and her aide, Colorado Charley try to run Gordon out of town but this fails, and he and the niece are soon on Calamity's side against Baker.

Calamity Jane and the Texan.....

That was the title on the pretty Trucolor print shown on the Encore Western's channel....and I thought the film was a pretty likable low budgeter. The cast was professional...and the writing and direction told the pleasant enough story well. The depiction of Calamitiy Jane's love for the late lamented Hickock...and her reluctance to be caught up in a flirtation with lawyer Eliison give the film a slight air of gravity and romance missing from most b westerns of the era....

I like the strange ethereal unreality of well used two color systems...and the use of pink and orange and green in this one is a treat....and well worth a peak for he curious...
