You see, men have got the whole world right in their punch. And you've got to show them that you are strong as they are. If you run after them they run away.

If you are honest with them and you tell them what you think well then they get scared because they think that you see right through them. If you hold them the reins tight then they drop and escape.

Well, let's face it: this film will never win an academy award, but it's still a nice decent entertainment with humour touches. Fine acting and a typical plot make this film a good Indians and cowboys one. This is a remake of 1936 Cecil B. De Mille's The Plainsman with Gary Cooper. Here Don Murray plays Will Bill Hickok, Guy Stockwell William Cody and Abby Dalton Calamity Jane. All of them do it all right although no sparkling. Leslie Nielse appears in the end of the movie as col. Custer. Beautiful scenery (the opening credits and first meeting between Hickok and chief Black Kettle specially) and nice script (see the scene where Calamity Jane talks with Cody's wife about men). So do not expect a ten star film but still worth watching.
