Summary

Calamity Jane

Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok in this entertainment mother lode. At first curvaceous Calamity is too darned busy fighting Indians and cracking a bullwhip to pay mind to such girlie what-alls as dresses and perfume. And Wild Bill is too danged busy wooing a dainty chanteuse (Allyn McLerie) to give a hoot about a hot-headed tomboy. But things change in a rootin,’ tootin,’ big way when each becomes love’s target.

There are wide-open Technicolor Western spaces, lots of high-stepping dances and a hummable humdinger of a score by Academy Award®- winning song writers Sammy Fain and Paul Francis Webster, who took their first Oscar® for the classic ballad (and ’50 s megahit) Secret Love.
