Doris Day and Howard Keel fuss, feud and fall in love as Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok in this entertainment mother lode. At first curvaceous Calamity is too darned busy fighting Indians and cracking a bull-whip 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-opening Technicolor Western spaces, lots of high-stepping dances and a hummable humdinger of a score by songwriters Sammy Fain and Paul Francis Webster.

Comments about Calamity Jane (1953) (The Great Musicals):
How the years have flown, since i first saw this movie in 1953, and it is as enjoyable now as it was back then.
It has not lost anything in being remastered into DVD format. The colour and sound are excellent.
It is a light hearted and easy movie to watch.
Acting styles may have changed between then and now, but this musical deserves a place of mention and worth watching...i loved it all over again.
