Deadwood, Dakota Territory, is largely the abode of men, where Indian scout Calamity Jane is as hard-riding, boastful, and handy with a gun as any; quite an overpowering personality. But the army lieutenant she favors doesn't really appreciate her finer qualities. One of Jane's boasts brings her to Chicago to recruit an actress for the Golden Garter stage. Arrived, the lady in question appears (at first) to be a more feminine rival for the favors of Jane's male friends...including her friendly enemy Wild Bill Hickock. Written by

I saw Calamity Jane as a kid in 1963 and it immediately became one of my all time favorite movies. It has stood the test of time, and still remains among my favorites. At the time that I first saw Calamity Jane I could identify with the character because, like 'Calam', I was somewhat of a tomboy myself although I was totally in love with some of the good looking on screen cowboys of that era. Doris and Howard Keel did an excellent job in this movie and their voices were second to none! Secret Love still makes my heart sing and Deadwood Stage will always be a toe tapper for me. Even at the ripe old age of 55, Calamity Jane is still one of my favorite movies. It is a must see for people who love the romantic westerns of the 1950's. Of course it is among my collection of VHS favorites. My husband and children are also fans.
