||Synopsis: 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.

Calamity Jane (Doris Day) is the tom-cowboy to end all tom-cowboys,
known for her feisty attitude and tallish tales of fighting Indians.
When saloon/theater owner Henry Miller (Paul Harvey) is faced with
angry Deadwood residents because he tries to pass off a man in drag as
the attractive New York actress he promised (he made the mistake based
on the actor's name), "Calam" promises to go to "Chicagee" and bring
back an actress all of the men are going gaga for because of her
picture on cigarette cards.
Director David Butler's Calamity Jane delivers on many ends--it's a
musical featuring catchy songs, many sung by one of the greatest
songstresses of her era, Doris Day, and a few incredibly choreographed;
it's a frequently hilarious comedy; it's suspenseful in quite a few
scenes (usually through realistic dramatic tension); it's a beautifully
shot western with fantastic sets; and in the end, it's a grand romance.
Day carries the film with her unusual, enjoyable, amusingly butch
character. She plays Calamity Jane with boundless energy and physical
aplomb--you wouldn't catch many modern film performers doing some of
the stunts that Day does here. Butler usually keeps the camera close
enough to Day that you can see it's her--she hasn't been supplanted
with a stuntperson, and during one bit of choreography, Butler has Day
jumping and flipping over bars and being taken up to a second story
balcony and set back down with lots of uninterrupted takes. Most modern
directors would break up the choreography into a series of relatively
easy steps, creating physics defying agility through clever cutting.
Day has to perform the steps as if she were doing the number on a
Calamity and most of the rest of Deadwood, South Dakota are funny
because of their backwoods naivety. That can be a difficult thing to
sell to viewers, but when Francis Fryer (Dick Wesson) almost gets away
with his necessary cross-dressing shtick, it's believable. Calamity's
trip to Chicago has some particularly hilarious moments. The humor also
works as well as it does because the two men who are the later romantic
interests, Wild Bill Hickok (Howard Keel) and Lieutenant Danny
Gilmartin (Philip Carey), are the primary ones who seem to have a more
objective perspective on the town's gullibility and Calamity's tall
tales (although there are hints that their skepticism is not so
Many viewers are most attracted to the film because of its evolution
into a romance in the last act. Day's transformation in this section is
handled expertly--if you watch her closely, she never quite loses her
Calamity tomboyishness, but she also makes more than just a physical
transformation. But it's not just Day who is excellent--all of the
performances in the film are good.
For me, Calamity Jane is one of the most successful combinations of
comedy and a still serious western. It's everything that Cat Ballou
(1965) should have been, but mostly fell flat with. Don't miss it if
you're a fan of either musicals or good-natured westerns.
