This lively musical film is set in the heart of Deadwood (Dakota Territory).
It tells the tale of the tumultuous relationship between tomboy Calamity
Jane and Wild Bill Hickok. Although Calamity was usually so darn occupied
with fighting Indians and cracking a bullwhip she slowly but surely begins
to change her high-stepping tune and fall for her biggest rival. Calamity
Jane has to be one of Doris’s best known and most loved characters.
Generations have been enchanted by this magical film with its timeless Oscar
nominated score by Sammy Fain and Paul Francis Webster. It also contains
Doris’s million-selling single Secret Love which won her an Academy Award.
