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...
